For sale is this well preserved vintage music box. It is an Anri with a Thorens movement. It plays Look to the Rainbow. These are no longer in production. Look at the pictures to see that all the parts are there and nothing is broken. Even the flowers have not chipped, the rabbits have their ears, and the birds have their head, wings and tail in tact. The tune plays perfectly. The boy turns as the music plays. This is the larger model that is 7 inch across and 8 inch high.These retail for $425 and they are old too, so you get quite a bargain here.
On an average, it takes about three months to create an ANRI figure. The process begins with the purchase of 80 year old maple trees from plantations in France. Only the best and healthiest trees are selected and only about 20% of these meet the ANRI standards. These logs are air dried for up to 3 years and then cut into blocks which are kiln dried to reduce moisture to 10%. Woodcarver Oswald Moroder founded the shop in the year 1937.This is the reason why these boxes are so sought after and are so pricey.
