No need to untie the glittering bow or open the cut-away gift box of this Animated Gift Music Box. Nestled within this pre-opened Animated Gift Music Box is a timeless Christmas Eve vignette. As the village comes to life, a Christmas tree turns, homes are illuminated and Christmas carols play. Resin, plastic. Felted underside. Takes 3 AAA batteries (not included). 7.75"h. x 5.5"sq.
This Animated Gift Music Box is inspired by music boxes with whimsical themes and motifs in our Division of Home and Community Life, National Museum of American History, Behring Center. A number of different household items with Christmas themes—including snapshots, toys and decorations—are housed in our Division of Home and Community Life, which is responsible for the collection, care and preservation of more than three million objects. The collections reflect the breadth, depth and complexity of the experiences of the American people, from social and cultural history to the history of science, medicine and technology.
Every Smithsonian purchase will arrive with a museum provenance card explaining how it is adapted from or inspired by an object or objects in our collection.
