Mother of Pearl Inlay Lacquer Music Jewelry Box

This wooden bird music box is elegantly embellished with mother of pearl design of a pair of cranes
delighting in a romantic moment on a pine tree wrought by the intricate mother of pearl inlaying technique.

The cranes are symbols of long life and good health.

This jewelry box that is decorated with inlaid work has a high gloss finish that is complement to mother of pearl inlay.
The color is a very dark red, almost black, purchased to match mahogany furniture.

Mother-of pearl boxes are made with well-dried wood and other materials are added and layered on to it.
After, it is lacquered and handmade detailed decorations are crafted onto this box.
It takes about 3~6 months to complete one work. The best lacquer is used for these products and is everlasting.
The light of these mother-of-pearl boxes is softly glowing delicate color.
This delicacy is no comparison to any other art work it is in the limelight as a traditional artwork in the world.

Made in Korea.

Inside are three drawers and a carousel for necklaces.
At the bottom is a large drawer that when opened plays the music.
All of the drawers are lined with red color velvet.

This music box plays the famous Korean folk song, "Arirang."
"Arirang" is so popular in Korea that it might be called the national folk song.
The words have to do with the longing and weary feeling of having been jilted by a lover.
Arirang was sung by ordinary people during their hard times to help them overcome fatigue and anguish.
The music is intentionally very slow. 

Size: 9” x 12 “

Purchased in Korea in 1988, never used. Original Price over $100
