This lovely gilded music box is finely engraved and features a cobalt blue enamel decoration interspersed with multiple florals. This design surrounds the hinged oval door which is adorned with a scenic enamel design of farm animals quecching their thirst by a river. This music box springs to life with a cardinal singing and flapping its' wings when the door pops open with a touch of a latch. The original key is shaped in the form of a bird and winds the music box at the bottom of the box. Swiss made, circa 1920. Excellent condition, L 4 1/8" , W. 2 3/4" , H. 1 3/4"
