Baroque Style Brass and Pewter Continental Music Box
A brass and pewter Baroque style music box with cherub figural ormolu. The box sits on four scroll feet with acanthus leaf motif throughout and circular and ovular bosses and the head of Hypnos to the center front of the lid. The interior is velvet lined with a wind up key for music playing. The songs featured are listed on a label to the bottom and include three excerpts from Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart scores, ‘Eine kleine Nachtmusik,’ ‘Glockenspiel,’ and ‘Reich mir die Hand.’ The music still plays wonderfully.
