Music is a powerful thing. When a composer unites perfect notes with poignant lyrics, the results are incredible. In fact, a simple melody can not only move hearts, but it can also move a nation. It’s no wonder one of the most significant ways we communicate is through song.
The artisans who create music boxes understand the power of song. That’s why they can take melodies already imbued with nostalgia, passion and cultural relevance, and turn them into works of art. Emotional works of art that most everyone can afford to proudly display in their home. That’s why music boxes have become so popular since their invention over 200 years ago.
While they are certainly conversation starters when displayed in your curio cabinet, or on your mantel or shelf, music boxes have another key characteristic that is often overlooked. Besides their artistic beauty, familiar sound, and expression of personal taste, they can also convey love and appreciation for the important people in our lives. Because many of these tuneful treasures feature unique designs, sentimental inscriptions, and personalized touches, they make a wonderful way to communicate just how you feel.
