Wind Up Opera

Ladies and gentlemen, we would like to present the Mozartkugel Music Box, an operatic bauble in the shape of a bomb. A paradox, the design is an artful and grownup take on the classic childhood toy.

The playful shape is crafted from linden veneer, the same finish used on the bright  trapezoid frame and glossy round drawer knobs. Otherwise made ...
