£295.00

  • A vintage clockwork Italian made musical cigarette box with a matchbox holder with exposed striking panel. In burr wood with inlaid ebony stringing. Four ebony button feet and an ebony handle to start the mechanism. When the button is twisted, the box begins by playing the Italian National Anthem as it opens and O Sole Mio as it closes. The mechanism is stiff and needs some attention - either lubrication or perhaps a washer or two to raise the opening panel as it sticks at the bottom right. Measures about 6 1/2 x 6 3/4 x 4 inches 16.5 x 17 x 10 cms and weighs 765g. There are a few small bleached areas where I am guessing the sun has got to it, but no damge or splits of any kind to the wood.Dimensions: 16.5 x 17 x 10
