A small charming inlaid ballerina framed within a filetto border adorns the lid of this beautiful blue music box. It allows you to view the mechanism and features a compartment ined in beige velvet that includes a ring bar. It measures 5" x 4 1/4" and stands about 2 3/4" upon tiny brass feet.
You may select your favorite tune from our 1.18 Tune List.
The Italian word "filetto" translated means "thread" and therefore the pattern that was used and framed with a Filetto border has (in English), a "thread-like" border. Skilled marquetry is required for this extra delicate inlay.
Also available in a lovely pink or light plum, We have many Ballet specific melodies: "Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy", "Waltz of the Flowers", "Swan Lake", "Music Box Dancer," and "Coppelia," to name some.
