Raise the lid of this mini green porcelain Animated Christmas Scene Music Box, wind it up and prepare to be enchanted.

The lid of this Mini Animated Christmas Scene Music Box previews the animated scene within. Porcelain, plastic, metal. 2.25"sq.
This Mini Animated Christmas Scene Music Box is inspired by a design or illustration in our Warshaw Collection of Business Americana, located in the Archives Center of our National Museum of American History, Behring Center. A vast assemblage of business ephemera, the collection includes Victorian-era postcards, greeting cards, letterheads, catalogues, advertisements and commerce-related memorabilia. Acquired by the Smithsonian Institution in 1967, this group of over one million items was the collection of Isadore Warshaw, a New York bookseller, who was concerned that the business community lacked interest in preserving its past.
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.
