This is gorgeous, sort of reminds me of a grand piano in a way. Really lovely. Thanks for posting.

You just don't find items like this for sale any place. The music box is indeed unique as well as beautifully crafted.

You have every right to be very proud of your work and thank you for letting us view your endeavoer.
