About Traditional Music Boxes Music Boxes

Although the specific inventor of the classic music box is unknown, the earliest music boxes can be traced back to Switzerland around the late 1700s. The mechanical movement, the heart and soul of the music box, consists of only a few pieces, including a rotating cylinder with raised pins, a comb with prongs, and a winding key or turn handle. An internal spring stores the energy when the music box is activated, playing the recorded melody.

Our collectible music boxes work by winding the turn handle, which causes the cylinder inside the box to rotate. As it turns, the cylinder brushes against fine metal prongs that produce the correct notes for the song. If you’re looking for a traditional music box that plays melodies with a mechanical movement instead of a modern, digital module, shop Music Box Attic first!
