Rousseau's distressed music box
Rousseau's music box is an ornate mechanical musical box with a hinge lid that, when opened, plays the song, "Intermezzo" from Carmen (Georges Bizet, 1875) from the episode, "Solitary." There is a small dancing pair that twirls around in the center. The box is given to Danielle Rousseau by her lover, Robert, Alex's biological father. This music box was studio-distressed to show its age and wear and tear from being on the Island since 1988, exhibiting overall scuffing to the wood and the lid is off the hinge.
