Heirloom quality, La Musica D'Italia Inlaid Music Box-exquisite Grand Opera 5-cylinder Swiss Music Box made by the famous Reuge music box makers, for the Franklin Mint Company in 1985. High quality sound, beautiful burled wood with possibly Rosewood and Ebony inlay with black high-gloss trim. It's so highly polished that it was a bit of a challenge getting around the reflections in photographing it. The works are polished brass and it measures 7 1/2" wide, 17" long and not quite 4 3/4" high. There is a glass "lift-up" protecting the works and a mirror inside the cover, as shown. There are 5 interchangeable cylinders with 10 of the most wonderful arias from favorite Italian Operas, including: 1) Verdi: Aida-Triumphal March and Rigolleto, La donna e'mobile; 2) Verdi: II Trovatore-Anvil Chorus, and La Traviata-Sempre Libera; 3) Rosssini: The Barber of Seville-Una voce poco fa and William Tell-Tyrolean Air; 4) Puccini: Madame Butterfly-Un Bel Di, and La Boheme, Mimi's Waltz; and 5) Verdi: Nabucco-The Hebrew Slave, and Rigoletto, Quartett. If you're looking for the perfect gift for your opera buff, look no further! Includes Certificate of Authenticity and Operating Instruction sheet.
