The classical origins of the music box

The music box has its origins in the 18th century in Switzerland . The first models, made by hand, were true pieces of craftsmanship. These wooden or metal boxes had a spring mechanism and small blades that produced sounds by turning the crank . Classic melodies, such as “Au clair de la lune” or “Pierre et le loup” , have rocked the nights of many generations. The craze for these unique objects quickly spread across Europe, becoming a symbol of elegance and refinement.

The evolution of the contemporary music box

With the advent of the industrial revolution, the music box underwent a major evolution. Manufacturing techniques have been modernized, allowing production on a larger scale. New materials such as plastic and metal were used to create more affordable music boxes for a wider audience . Traditional melodies have been joined by modern compositions, providing greater musical diversity. However, the artisanal quality and timeless charm of the first music boxes has faded somewhat in favor of mass production.
