This is a very sweet little jewellery box, especially designed as a birthday gift. It is a musical box which plays 'Happy Birthday' and it is in the form of a Swiss mountain chalet.
The lid lifts up to reveal a small compartment, with the greeting 'Happy Birthday' in embossed gold script. The compartment is for little pieces of jewellery such as rings and earrings.
The chalet is decorated with pretty flowers and has beautiful shutters with hearts. It has beautifully carved steps, a balcony, a bench, and a water pump. It also has natural pebbles on the roof which represent fallen mountain rocks. To the side of the chalet is a lovely log keep. As you can see this is a high quality box, beautifully made and with a superb amount of detail!
The box still has its original manufacturers labels on the base.
This is a very rare box with a 'Happy Birthday' greeting and tune. We have never seen another one the same. You can find many boxes with a chalet design, but not combined with this tune and greeting!
The musical movement
The box has a high quality Swiss Reuge movement which is in excellent working order. The music is operated via a wind up key on the base of the box. Three turns of the key is sufficient to fully wind the movement.
As with all musical boxes, care should be taken not to over wind the key.
The box is in excellent vintage condition with only very minor light wear.
Please use the following measurements to ensure that the box is the right size for your requirements.
8 by 4.5cm with an overall depth of 4.8cm. This includes the space inside the lid. The compartments ledge itself has a shallow 5mm depth.
