This vintage silvertone metal music box with red velveteen lining has the shape of an ornate grand piano. The top features a cherub in the center, surrounded by extensive filigree work, with the red lining peeking through. An intricate floral design wraps around the sides of the piano, and its three legs have a crosshatch pattern. When you raise the lid, the music box plays Lara’s Theme from Dr. Zhivago (also known as “Somewhere My Love.”) Measures 4" x 3-1/2" x 2-1/4" tall when closed. Red-lined well behind the music box mechanism is large enough to hold rings or a small necklace. Unmarked bottom contains the key to wind up the music box. Great vintage condition with no dings or dents. Metal has developed a lovely patina over the decades and has the look of soft pewter. Music box works perfectly, but the clear plastic piece inside the piano that sits atop the music box mechanism to protect it from dust needs to be reglued in place.

If you’re looking for a truly unique music box, this one is about as unique as it gets! It’s a large grand piano made of shiny ebony acrylic with brass tone pedals and gold tone ball feet. Most of the top is slightly indented, textured, decorated with two sprays of colorful roses, and holds two removable white swans. When the music box plays, the swans twirl and “swim” around the top while the piano keys move up and down as if the piano were really playing! You can also remove the swans, open the lid, support it with the flip-up support rod, and lift up the music rack. Music box plays the “Blue Danube Waltz” by pushing the little “on” button at the end of a detachable wire whose head plugs into the bottom of the piano. Runs on two C batteries accessed by a flip-up lid on the bottom that’s marked “Chain Fong Made in China.” Piece measures 9-1/2" x 8-3/4" x 5-1/2" tall when closed. The music box has an amazing sound, not at all “tinkly” like most music boxes. Very good condition with some scratching where the hinged top has come into contact with the piano side, and some white scuff marks on the top undoubtedly made by the energetically swimming swans.

Good vintage condition with some scratching on the legs and one side that give it character and make it look like a miniature version of an authentic vintage player piano!
