Art Deco Musical Wooden Jewellery/Trinket Box - Serpentine front & velvet lined
Probably dates from 20's or 30's
Dimensions: Length 21 cm x 12.5 cm wide x 7 cm deep
Fabric of box is in very good condition (as in photos). In need of a fresh coat of varnish. Two-tone wooden box has an unusual but decorative serpentine front. The Swiss musical movement (by Thorens) is in need of repair. The stop/start mechanism is in need of adjustment. When the movement is wound up it plays well but does not start when box lid is opened or stop when lid is shut. No cover for the movement either. The box is fully lined in red velvet.
In need of a little TLC - great restoration project for someone!
