Here is a beautiful old inlaid wood music box. The top opens, and the little ballerina dances!It plays I believe "Santa Lucia".... And it makes me believe this is Italian in origin????? I think it was made in the fifties??
Slight interior discoloration from age.... But over all it really looks old and elegant! The lock and key work....
The mechanism that make it play is just a wire that sticks up. It works great but it can get stuck ins the hole it comes out of. You can just "fish" it back out...... Just thought I'd mention it.
