Vintage Musical Jewellery Box With Ballerina

This is a beautiful vintage musical jewellery box. It was made in the 50s/60s, in Norway, and bears the Norwegian flag.

The Exterior

This box is in the form of a chest and would particularly suit a young child. It is made of solid pine and has a protective varnished finish.

The box is very nicely jointed and has an unusual pinned opening as opposed to hinges. It has a stylish slatted design and beautiful hand-beaten faux hinges and faux lock.

The lid has colourful transfer printed Norwegian flags with Norge lettering beneath. There is hand-painted detail to the edges of the lid and the feet of the box.

The Interior

The lid opens to reveal a beautiful ballerina which is situated on the casing of the musical movement. The ballerina stands on a painted gold disc and she moves when the musical movement is in operation. She spins around and also moves up and down. It is rare for ballerina's to do both!

The Musical Movement

The musical movement plays the beautiful tune 'Til the End of Time'. The original title sticker of the tune is still present on the inside of the box.

Operating The Musical Movement

The movement is operated via the wind-up key on the bottom of the box. 4 turns of the key are sufficient to play the tune in full.

The movement is in perfect working order, playing the tune at the correct tempo. The music stops as it should, when the lid is closed or when the movement is fully unwound.

Notes On Vintage Musical Movements

Care must be taken not to overwind the movement. Over winding will result in the movement malfunctioning.

Vintage movements are already old and so will naturally have some wear from age and use. They may occasionally malfunction or deteriorate over time.

We are not responsible for movements that may deteriorate or malfunction from further age and use once a box is purchased. Neither are we responsible for movements that malfunction from overwinding.

Please ensure the movement is still working as soon as you receive your box. It will be checked again prior to posting.

You can view our full returns policy which includes musical movements, by visiting our Payments And Returns page.


This lovely old box is in excellent condition. It is structurally sound and has no damage.

There is slight wear to the ballerina's hair which has occurred over time from where the lid closes on it.

Occasionally the ballerina won't pop up when you lift the lid. Gently rotating her rectifies this.
