Collectibles > German Music Boxes
Originally, very simple music boxes were created in the Erzgebirge region of Germany and played, driven by means of a small handle. The human or animal figurines on them would move to tunes created by a wooden mechanism, which produced quite a different sound compared to today's music boxes produced in the Erzgebirge. Please review our selection of imported German Music Boxes reflecting the craftsmanship by such renowned firms as KWO, Müller, Ulbricht and Christine Blank. All hand made in the Erzgebirge region of Saxony - with genuine Swiss movements by Reuge. You will find the new Müller Electronic Music Boxes with interchangeable Motif platforms in this special section.
