For a similar musical box, see Alfred Chapuis, The History of the Muscial Box, p. 150, fig. 143, the illustrated box stamped P.C. is recorded at the time in the collection of Guido Reuge. Chapuis notes in the caption that the "boite à mouches (de velours)" was intended for keeping "little velvets" or "beauty spots" used by women for a period between the late 17th to early 18th centuries.
