Taking an inordinate intermission from packing, haha!
Wanted to take the chance to say that music boxes enchant me.
Flipped a couple open today and peered in eagerly to study the manifold mechanism.
It works like this:

There is a golden cylinder that revolves around at the prepared pace when the music box is opened. As the cylinder spins around and twirls, there are subtle indentations upon it which strike a row of keys that produce sound -- sort of like how a piano progresses.

I really have to pack now, bye, lovelies!
