Jewelry: 1910 - 1939 Art Deco. Vintage REUGE Carousel Music Box Cigarette Holder La Valse des Fleurs Italy 14. Up for offer is a vintage Reuge Cigarette Music Box Carousel Holder, Made in Italy. The top is adorned with a cherub while the top and center band are deep blue enamel over metal with hand painted with various colored birds. The three feet are a demon / Bacchus face.
I believe the top portion may be porcelain while the rest is enamel. It plays "La Valse des fleurs" from Tchaikovsky's "The Nutcracker" when wound and the button the side is pushed. Then the middle opens up and rotates out to show silver holders for cigarettes/lipstick with a red fabric background. There are floral and lute designs on each of the silver pieces. It is approximately 14" tall with an approximate diameter of 8".
Condition: There is some slight wear to the silver but overall most of the enamel is in great condition with the paint still in great shape. Mechanically, the carousel works great!
