This exceptional Swiss musical jewelry box was crafted of marvelously chased and repoussé silvered bronze by F. Conchon of Geneva. A homage to the huntsman, the entire box is surrounded by intricate hunting motifs and is crowned by the image of Saint Hubertus, the patron saint of hunters.

The lid opens to reveal a lined interior of blue satin that is ideal for storing one's most prized pieces of jewelry. Lifting the lid also activates the music box housed within the base. The key-wound mechanism remains in fine condition and plays three lovely tunes. Most Swiss music boxes of this time were made of wood, making this particular silvered bronze example an exceptional find.

This music box is accompanied by its original protective case.

Handwritten tune card numbered "1741" with the label for F. Conchon of Geneva.

Circa 1880
