This is a stylish Retro musical jewellery box, dating to the 1950s. It has a Swiss Reuge movement that plays the tune of the old childrens nursery rhyme 'This Old Man' (Knick Knack Paddy Whack).
This box is made of beautiful Oak and has a stylish curved design. It has the most charming little brass hinges and stands raised on conical aluminium feet.
The interior has a single compartment and the musical movement is cased to the right of this. It has beige coloured soft brushed felt linings. The casing can be removed should the movement ever require attention.
The Musical Movement
The movement is in perfect working order. The music stops as it should, when the lid is closed or when the movement is fully unwound.
Operating The Musical Movement
The movement is operated via the brass winding key on the bottom of the box. 6 turns of the key are sufficient to fully wind up the musical movement.
Notes About Vintage Musical Movements
As with all musical boxes, care should be taken not to over wind the movement. Over winding will result in the movement malfunctioning.
We would like to make you aware that vintage movements can occasionally malfunction. They are already old and so will naturally have some wear from age and use. We are not responsible for movements that malfunction from further age and use once boxes are purchased. Please ensure the movement is stil 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 movements, by visiting our Payments And Returns page.
