VINTAGE SCHMIDT SILK SATIN COVER METAL MUSIC BOX PLAYS "ROMERO & JULIET" SONG
Dark red velvety fabric inside the music box which has plenty of room for one's favorite jewelry including a special place to put earrings. The interior has a mirror which is in good condition on the inside and is extremely clear. Little embossed design of scrolls adorn the "feet" for the music/jewelry box to stand on. The music box was loved very much by someone and there is some soiling on the interior which was difficult to pick up in a photo.
The lid has a lovely scene of vintage women in fancy gowns along with men dancing. The lid is in a silk satiny fabric as well as inserts on the front, sides and back along with the metal frame. When the music box is wound up on the bottom with "key" with an embossed "S" on it, it starts to play the melody when the lid is lifted. The song it will play Romeo and Juliet. Music box was made in Japan in around the '60s / '70s probably. Schmid made music boxes from 1940 - 1970.
Measures 8-1/2" long 4-5/8" wide and 3" high. Romeo & Juliet gold label noting the song is partially missing as shown in the photo.
This would make a lovely gift for some who loves that beautiful song!

We examine each item carefully and note any imperfections, but unless an item is said to be new, please don't expect it to be perfect & even some new items have small imperfections. I will always state in the description if there are any imperfections & I never do repairs but leave them to others who are better able to do them than me as that is not my expertise.
Please remember that unless specified all items have been used and will show varying signs of use or wear. We always list the obvious imperfections to the best of our abilities. However, some slight imperfections that will not show or affect wearing or using the item may slip by or not be considered worth mentioning.
Vintage nightgowns & peignoirs may be delicate so I do not wash them in the machine. I wash them in lukewarm water with Woolite or some other mild soap, then rinse & hang dripping wet in the shower.
Since these are vintage items, a bit of extra care needs to be taken with them so they remain beautiful & I definitely would never put a vintage nightgown or a peignoir in the dryer as it would ruin it.
The items are sold as we find them. We do not dry clean, launder, alter or repair vintage clothing and they should be cleaned or washed upon arrival. Please make your selection carefully & check the measurements as there is no return on clothing or other items.
