My mom just past away and I found a jewelry box Schmidt

Customer Question

My mom just past away and I found a jewelry box Schmidt brothers inc has a portrait on the cover of box and underneath box is sticker that says the picnic after the hunt, by Nicolas Lancret 1690-1793. When you wind it underneath it plays theme from Romeo and Juliet. It looks like there may have been something that turned like a ballerina but that's missing. Think it's worth anything?

I will need to see pictures of the box and any marks. The bottom as well. Use the ADD FILES button in the lower right of your screen to add pictures. You can also email to***@******.*** and put for rarewares in antiques in the subject line so they will get forwarded to me. Email takes a bit longer, so thanks in advance for your patience.

I do not have them yet, but should get them within 12 to 24 hours. I will work on the answer as soon as I see the pictures. Thanks so much for letting me know!
