Beautiful Lacquered Musical Vintage Jewellery Box


This is a beautiful vintage musical jewellery box, dating to the 1980s. It is in wonderful condition for its age.

The Exterior

This box has a stylish streamlined design and a beautiful glossy lacquered finish. The lid has a lovely scenic picture of an angel standing protectively behind two young children.

The box has its original stop hinges which hold the lid upright. It stands slightly raised on its original gold metal feet, the bases of which have felt linings to prevent your furniture from being scratched.

The Interior

The interior has a single storage compartment and its original soft pale grey brushed felt linings. The musical movement is cased to the left of the compartment.

The Musical Movement

The movement plays a very pretty tune, the title of which we haven't deciphered.

The movement is in working order, playing the tune at its correct tempo.

Operating The Musical Movement

The movement is operated via the winding key on the bottom of the box. Four turns of the key are sufficient to fully wind up the movement. The music stops as it should, when the lid is closed or when the movement has fully unwound.

Notes On Vintage Musical Movements

As with all musical boxes, care should be taken not to overwind the movement. Overwinding will result in the movement malfunctioning. Please allow the movement to fully unwind before rewinding. We are not responsible for movements that are overwound or for movements which deteriorate from further age and use once boxes are purchased.

Please check the movement is still working as soon as you receive your box. It will be checked again prior to posting.

Please read our returns policy which includes our policy on musical movements.
