Vintage Swiss Reuge Music Box$18(Novato, CA)

This is a vintage, musical, Swiss Reuge movement box, made in Italy. When the lid of the box is lifted the classical Edelweiss tune; ie., Laura’s Theme from Dr. Zhivago, is played, and stops once the top of the box is closed. The top of the music box is olive green and decorated with a yellow inlaid rose design surrounded by foliage, while the base; ie., the top and sides of the music box are polished with clear lacquer over olive green. The top is brass hinged and the base of the box stands upon 4 (four) brass feet. The measurements approximate: 2” tall x 4” width. I acquired this music box as part of an estate that I am charged with selling. It is in excellent condition with no scratches or blemishes. However, there does seem to be a slight discoloration in the paint in the upper right hand corner of the box lid; this could be due to the manufacturing process or the vintage age of the piece. In either case, I have made a price adjustment. The music box itself functions perfectly.
