Wind-up or mechanical music boxes can bring a whimsical and fantastically festive atmosphere into your home. One of the best-known makers of traditional wooden music boxes is Richard Glässer. Famous for its woodcarving from the region of Erzgebirge, the Glässer workshop makes a range of mechanical music boxes, each on a platform adorned with a different festive scene. Glässer’s mechanical music box designs come in a range of styles, from more religious elements of Christmas to more festive scenes. A few favorite mechanical music boxes on offer include a concert of angels singing in a chorus, a traditional nativity scene and a bustling Christmas market scene — all of which play the Christmas classic Silent Night when wound up.
All products are handmade in Saxony's Erzgebirge, Germany, and come with a two-year product warranty.
