Announcement   I'm out of business from 20th of August until 29nd of August. The shipping time - during this time - can be up to 2 weeks. From 30rd of August business as usual. If you have any questions, please text me and I'll respond as soon as I can. Thank you for your understanding.

My music boxes (or musical boxes or musicboxes) suitable for Christmas, birthdays, weddings and any other occasion, decorated with ornaments, from beech wood in natural or mahogany / walnut finish (a few other colors). All my works are handmade and only available in limited quantities. I use high-quality materials and I own unique technologies.

I build the music box (a hand-powered instrument, capable of playing a short tune) in a wooden case decorated with motifs cut out with a fretsaw or engraved.
Due to the technical characteristics of the instrument, a slight metal noise is heard as it plays (metal comb teeth are plucked by metal pins while rotating the cylinder with the ratchet lever, which inevitably produces some noise). Unlike digital instruments, a mechanical music box can never offer a clear, noise-free audio experience.

Payment: I prefer PayPal and Direct Checkout, except for domestic customers.
Shipping: I ship with FEDEX, and the estimated delivery time is about 3-5 working days. Items are shipped on weekdays, maximum 3 days after payment was recieved (the amount appear in the Esty account or PayPal).
