Description
Cigarette case, Cigarette case in Carillon Rouge - Ceramic, Silver gilt
Italy - First half 19th century

Cigarette dispenser with Reuge music box from the mid-20th century. Made in Italy. Windup key on bottom. When the music plays, the small ceramic doors, painted with flowers, start spinning like a carousel, and open to reveal what is kept in the metal pockets (cigarettes). With a swan shaped pivot and pine cone on top.
Overall height: 40 cm. Resting on three small feet, each decorated with a mask. The melody is a Viennese Waltz.
The music box works as windup keeps on working. Original certificate got lost.
Vintage item in excellent condition, as shown by pictures, considering its age. It needs to be checked because sometimes it does not start. With slight signs of oxidation. Shipping via courier.
