This is a beautiful brass vintage 1950s japanese damascene musical powder box clover. This musical powder compact is in very good condition. The compact is made from brass and gold tone metal with a damascene lid decoration of a japanese scene on a matt background. To the left is the music box with its key and a jolly tune is played when the lid is opened. The bevelled mirror gives a good clear reflection.
The base of this adorable music box is decorated with a golden textured finish. 3" wide 1 3/4" long 3/4 depth (5,5 x 8,5 cm). This is not for you if you're looking for perfection.It has marks and patina appropriate for its age, which only add to its beauty. So, it is not perfect. The pictures are part of the description but if you need anything else please let me know.
