Premium Swiss music box (hand-crafted in Switzerland, bought in Basal, Switzerland, in 1970). The name of the shop where this was bought is indicated on the bottom of the music box. All functioning elements are clearly viewed within the glass enclosure; it is a beautiful work of art. The glass is extra thick heavy glass, with no imperfections. The playing mechanism in the music box is like new, with no tarnish.
This music box features an extended register not found in ordinary music boxes. Fish-like gargoyle figures support each of the four corners.
Three pieces are played: Gavotte; Minuet from "Don Juan" by Mozart; and The Magic Flute by Mozart. Total playing time is 2.0 minutes. The music is amplified by using a unique solid wood base as a sounding board.I brought this music box back with me as a gift for my parents from Switzerland, where I was studying at the time. Because my parents did not live long after that, this music box has been in storage most of the past 50 years. It functions and sounds as well as it did when new.
