Mozart Musical Box - To Have and To Hold and To Hear as Well
91393 Mozart Musical Box, £75.00
In the Black Forest - where it's made - they call it the Mozartkugel. In Shepperton we settle for the Mozart Musical Box. Yet that hardly does justice to this remarkable and highly desirable object.
Essentially it's an 18 note musical movement inserted into a block of solid smoke-seasoned oak. This is shaped into a perfect sphere by a master wood turner before being sanded and polished by hand. Finally it's treated and waxed with natural oils to bring out the full lustre and individual character of the wood.
All you have to do is insert the chrome-plated brass key, turn it and listen to the enchanting sound of Mozart's 'Voi che sapete' from the Marriage of Figaro.
Warm and wonderfully tactile, it's supplied with a ring-shaped cradle and housed in an attractive gift box.
Diameter 3½ approx.
