This wall music box is composed of a decorative casing in faïence and a small metal music mechanism. The central section of the lavish faïence casing features a relief landscape with a little church in the background and fully sculpted figures of a man and a woman, standing in front of the gate attached to the pillars flanking the scene. The scene is enclosed in a decorative Rococo frame in faïence, just like the central section, with which it makes a harmonious whole. The little music mechanism is enclosed on the back side, in the lower section; it is protected by a wooden casing.
