Rare Victorian-style music box. Cigarette machine, created by Reuge in the 1960s in Italy.
By pressing the button on the side a 30-second cycle starts in, which the perfectly working pulley and chain slowly lift the lid, while music is playing, and the middle tray is brought up.
It stops for several seconds to give you time to take out the cigarette.
Then the whole closes again while another melody is playing. (The Godfather love story).
The outside is elegant with its hand-painted motifs and ornate silver-plated fish on pedestal, top, and handle.
If you want a video to hear and see it play perfectly, you can send me a message.
This lot will be shipped by insured mail and with Track and Trace.
