Antique music box (reuge?)

I have what I believe is a Reuge wooden musical box that has been passed down 3 generations. From the research I have done myself I believe the picture on the outside is of Sorrento, Italy. I believe it was hand painted on glass. The inside is lined red velvet and features a mirror with 2 ballerinas that dance to a unknown melody. The inside and the outside are both adorned with what appears to be brass. The bottom of the box has the wind mechanism and the only identifying tag on the box which is a sticker. I have been able to find similar ones online for about 400 dollars but I haven’t been able to find this model.
