Beautiful vintage musical jewelry box handcrafted in Sorrento, Italy with intricate marquetry wood designs featuring musical instruments, sheet music and flowers. The box is raised on brass paw feet and has its original brass key. The interior has two tiers and is lined with red fabric, which has some indentations from jewelry storage. Small paper label from the Sorrento artisan is stored inside. Wind up the music box and lift the top to hear “Torna a Sorrento.”

Condition is very good with wear consistent with age and use and a few hairline cracks in the lacquer surface across the front and back, which are only visible in very reflective light conditions.
