Post LOOK INSIDE, The most charming thing...
I've been wanting to share this with you. I'm so glad I found it.

It's of La Joueuse de Tympanon, a "music box" made in germany in 1772 by Pierre Kintzing and david roentgen for Marie Antoinette!

18 inches tall, plays 8 diffrent songs.

Yea it does.

being that it was crafted specifically for Marie Antoinette I wonder if it was made in her likeness?

Very sweet, I wonder what Antoinette thought of it?

It's oddly human, the doll /figure playing turning her head. It's eerie and fascinating at the same time.
