A piano jewelry music box is a lovely gift idea. Miniature pianos in general are quite intriguing. Items of beauty that will draw the attention of all who view them. They are a unique gift idea for everyone. Not just musicians. Whether you use them for holding jewelry or to just look at, these fascinating little pianos are a joy to behold.
A music box shaped like a piano can be found at most gift and novelty shops. And many websites offer a nice variety of these alluring little items. A certain number of people collect them as a hobby. Especially those who are in the piano business, such as musicians, teachers, piano tuners and dealers.
Sometimes these collections may just be miniature pianos and not necessarily jewelry music boxes. Thousands of miniatures have been made and sold over the years. Most are quite unique and some are antiques. The materials I have seen used in making them include wood, glass, plastic and metal.
Sizes greatly vary. Sometimes small enough to fit into the palm of your hand and big enough for a child to sit at. One miniature piano that a child can play is the Schoenhut Toy Piano. Of course they are not music boxes or jewelry boxes and can be played like a real piano. As for the smaller jewelry boxes they are usually only several inches long and wide.
A hand crafted piano music box may be quite expensive while mass produced boxes are very inexpensive. But it seems that no matter what they cost, each one has it's own special appearance. The more detailed ones will look very much like a real piano. Some may have less realistic details. And almost always the grand piano style is used as a model.
Mainly because the horizontal shape of a grand spreads out more than the upright piano shape. This is perfect for allowing a space inside for storing jewelry. And some are not equiped with a musical movement inside. These are just jewelry boxes. Whether or not they have a movement inside, I think all are exciting and lovely little pianos.
If you love a piano, why not start a collection of piano jewelry music boxes? Of course you will need lots of shelf or cabinet space to set them on. Or place a few of them on top of your real piano. If you have one. And who knows, someday your piano music box collection may become quite valuable.
