Vintage Anri 28 Note Thorens Music Box Scarlet Ribbons Hand Carved Wood:
Up for saleis a mint condition Anri music box. It plays Scarlet Ribbons. The mother sitting in the rocking chair turns around as the music plays. It is a very endearing scene as all of Anri's music boxes are. It is 7 inch across and over 8 inch high. It plays very nicely. It has the 28 note Thorens movement, which sounds much nicer than the smaller 18 note ones. This is one of a series that is no longer in production. Wonderful condition, key turns easily, stop switch works well.
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.
