Summer Catalogue

Friday, June 23, 2006

I am off to a great start, I am finally getting my website together, it has already been launched but I am having trouble getting into searches. We are fixing the broken coding. I am learning more and more about computers everyday.
As far as my products are going. I have put in some incredidble porcelain music boxes by Suberto. I also like to learn when and where my different products come from. So here is a little piece about music boxes
The picture to your right is a gorgeous music box by Suberto "Love Birds". There is magnificent detail in this piece.
Myth has it that the first music box was designed for the amusement and entertainment of Marie Antoinette. History, on the other hand, reveals the availability of musical clocks constructed in the 16th century for royalty and the wealthy. The musical tones were derived by notching a revolving disc striking a single pin.
The music box proper was introduced by Antoine Favre, a Swiss watchmaker, in 1796, enabling the middle class to dance and enjoy the popular music of the period in the privacy of their homes. The latter half of the 19th century rewarded the world with the enchanting melodies of the disc player, the predecessor of the contemporary phonograph, tapes and discs. These instruments were not only produced in Europe, but had great success by American manufacturers.
