This blue enamel Stratton Musica music box is in good condition. The lid is adorned with cobalt blue enamel which is decorated with white and pale blue floral motifs which have gilt accents and foliage. The original presentation box, pouch, mirror labels, puff and sifter are present. The Musica plays the Skater's Waltz tune perfectly. Wind the key clockwise & the tune plays for over one minute. The beautiful lid lifts to reveal an excellent bevelled mirror which gives a very clear reflection. The original mirror labels are in place.

One of them reads as follows:

To open inner door: press mirror-lid gently back; door springs open. To shut: bring mirror lid forward, and press door down. A STRATTON patent.

The inner lid is signed Stratton & has the Compact-in-Hand logo & an attractive pattern made up of horizontal lines. The patented self-opening inner lid works perfectly every time. The winder key is signed REUGE STE. CROIX PATENT and SWISS MADE. The base is adorned with the curled feathers design, which was used to decorate only the most luxurious Stratton accessories. Measures: 3 1/4 " X 2 3/4" & weighs 168.5 grams.
