This beautiful music box has a lot of writing on the bottom of it mostly in Chinese. (See the picture.) But it does say "The Palace Museum", "Forbidden City" and 1991. It cranks smooth and plays a beautiful little tune. The detail is beyond amazing. It measures approximately 5 1/4" long by 3" wide and 3 1/2" tall. It is in near mint condition. The exterior is perfect, no nicks or scratches. It's just the red felt on the inside needs a clean. Really interesting item! I insist on insurance so it is included in the shipping price. Thank you for visiting! I have just updated this listing so that South American Buyers may bid. Any other countries interested... just email me and ask!
