Sorrento inlay, Musical jewellery Box - Wood- Walnut

Sorrento inlay, Musical jewellery Box - Wood- Walnut
Italy - Second half 20th century

Amazing jewel of the Sorrento inlay produced after many hours of manual work by woodworking artisans.

It is a musical box inlaid in baroque style.

The edge of the carillon is covered walnut briar.
The base is made of birch wood
The inside part is made of Mahogany wood

A splendid classic Sorrentino inlay covers the surfaces of the box: the inlay is made by piercing many layers of different woods, glued by hand foil after foil.

The interior of the musical box is covered with a soft velvet lining that makes it even more enchanting.

The melody of Lara's theme music (from Doctor Zivago)) effused by the carillon further embellishes this work of art.

Dimensions: 37×21×9 cm
