This music box is destined to be a well loved family heirloom! The case is hand-crafted with exotic hardwoods and inlays, assembled within the most rigorous standards imaginable. The quality craftmanship is evident in the delicate harmony of woods, combining honey blondes with the darker hues of the rarest woods.
Finely drawn and cut patterns, with pieces that can be as thin as 0.7 mm create an intricate puzzle with as many as 1,800 pieces and 30 types of wood. The result is a true work of art.
The five interchangeable cylinders are equally well crafted, produced and assembled by hand in Sainte-Croix, Switzerland. The mechanism is uniquely constructed so the cylinders can be changed out in seconds. The gearing of the cylinder is set so that when the off switch is pushed down into the "off" position, the cylinder will continue to turn and play until the slot that holds the cylinder is in a 90 degree vertical position, to make changing the cylinders possible every time the music stops! Each cylinder has more than 1,400 pins, which when combined with the 72-note keyboard produces a very fine blending of notes.The amazing quality of the sound and the proper alignment of the interchangeable cylinder upon turning the music off can be seen in the video posted at the following site.

This laborious process painstakingly delivers the unrivaled beauty that makes these music boxes so highly sought after. Dimensions: 12" x 20" x 9 (30 × 50 × 23 cm).
