|I've restored many wooden boxes,
I purchased on fleemarkets. My wife Mechthild has decorated the
boxes with painted porcelain tiles or brooches. Here you see an oak box with a cylinder movement.
It's playing a Berlin melodie, when you open the lid. A motive from the Berlin cartoonist "Zille",
painted on small tiles, is decorates the underside of the lid.
|The heard of a music box is
the movement. You can get it in different sizes and quality.
It consist out of a cylinder with pins, a comb, a speed controller and a spring in a barrel to let it run.
The most popular movement makers are Reuge in Switzerland, Sankyo in Japan in meanwhile companies in China.
