Hand painted Limoges? enamel rectangle scene in center approx. 1" x 1 5/8"
Top of piano lifts open on hinge and there is an obscured number maybe 5 is part of it
I have no idea where this came from of if it is silver. I suspect 800 silver from Germany or Austia Hungary
Box has been mounted on a wooden base 7" x 13.5". It appears the wheels are separate from the piano and I am not sure if that is why it was mounted, to keep it together, also there is an extra piece, shown. Not sure where it came from
