It is a late 19th, perhaps early, early 19th century Italian inlay coffee or tea tray that also plays music (music box style works). The piece measures 24 inches by roughly 11.5 inches wide. It is a dark wood - mahogany with what looks like a lighter stained fruitwood inlay. Please see the photos for design. Some unique factors about this piece are (1) obviously, the wind-up music feature, (2) the veneer marquetry in an ornate and elegant patter as well as (3) wood handles instead of brass - very hard to find on these kind of trays - usually the gallery and handles are brass - in this instance they are delicate wood inlay.
Condition is generally very good - some crackling from age (see photos) but no breaks or loss. There is a minor veneer loss on the side (see photo 5).Overall impressive for the age.
