Vintage Reuge Musical Automaton Capodimonte Italian Cigarette Lipstick Carousel For Sale
From my Mom's estate and in mint condition. Purchased in Florence, Italy while on a cruise. Works perfectly. Handmade and painted by Capodimonte and has a Reuge Swiss Musical Movement. Plays Doctor Zhivago when the carousel doors are opening and Edelweiss when they are closing. Measures approx. 13 1/2" high. When doors are open you can see the tradition Reuge Lyre symbol in the center. Marked plated in Gold Leaf so this wonderful vintage cigarette/lipstick musical carousel looks stunningly brand new. Vintage is early 60's. Stunning and detailed piece for display and since you don't see these any more, a real surprise when you wind it up and push the button on the outer rim of the base. It also plays for a long time without rewinding it. Very heavy in weight and needs an oversized box for shipping.
