Zimbalist 7.5" Musical Clam Shell

Circa 1950s, this 7.5" x 6" Silvery piece was designed by Fred Zimbalist, a cousin of Ephrem Zimbalist, Sr. (the famed concert violinist).

Nickle Silver plated pieces such as this one were all hand tooled in India and no two were exactly the same.
In the shape of a footed seashell, it plays two tunes with 28 notes, Gianina Mia and Finiculi, Finicula.
Gianina Mia was originally from the movie "Firefly" circa 1937. Mario Lanza sang both songs in the 1950s.
