Description

Ruby Carousel Music Box
 
Created in the lavishly ornate style of the celebrated Fabergé eggs made for the Russian Imperial family between1885 and 1916, this stunning ruby-colored, glazed egg music box is handcrafted from an actual goose or duck egg and embellished with red and blue crystals, swags of gold and a gold crown on top.
 
Standing on an ornate, golden pedestal, it features a carousel of horses revolving around the center in mid-gallop on gold poles. When wound by hand it plays "March of the Flowers" .

This carousel music box is reminiscent of the carnival-esque sets and costumes designed for the Met’s production of Cosi Fan Tutte.

History

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s Così fan tutte

Mozart’s third and final collaboration with librettist Lorenzo Da Ponte premiered in 1790. For much of the 19th and early 20th centuries, this comedy about testing the ties of young love was rarely seen on stage, its plot being considered “immoral.” Today it is among the most beloved operas in the repertoire.
