This is for a vintage Japanese komai mixed metals mechanical musical box compact, circa 1940. Made of gilded brass, rectangular in form, with a hinged lid. The lid is inset with a Komai plaque, made of iron and damascened to depict a Japanese landscape with Mount Fuji in the background, marked 'K24'. The interior is gilded, with a machine turned surface, with a mirro set within the lid, and a hinged face powder compartment, marked 'Musical'. The interior has a winder for the mechanical musical movement, which plays a short tune when the lid is opened, by means of a set of pins placed on a revolving cylinder, which plucks the tuned teeth of the steel comb. There is an on/off switch to the side. This musical box compact measures 9.1 cm in length, 6.0 cm in width, and 2.0 cm in thickness. It weighs 152 grams. The condition is generally very good, without damage or repair, the gilding does have surface wear, from age and use. Please see images.
Guaranteed old & original.
