Simple Gifts Shaker Oval Music Box

Simple Gifts Shaker Oval Music Box with Reuge 1.18 mechanism


Exceptionally handsome miniature version of the original Shaker oval box.

This particular box was made and endowed with a lovely older Reuge Mechanism that plays "Simple Gifts."  They originally were produced with Swiss (Reuge) movements, as shown in image, playing the well-known Shaker hymn. 

This box is clear cherry wood with solid copper tacks and a hand-rubbed oil finish.  Stamped on bottom "Orleans Carpenters, Orleans Mass." The Shaker box is in excellent condition.  Measures 4.75" L x 3" W x 2" H.
