A turn of the large elegantly shaped key magically produces one of Mozart‘s melodies from inside the solid beech wood ball. The 18-note chime is ‘Voi che sapete’ from ‘Marriage of Figaro’ and plays whether the ball is still on a shelf or rolling across the floor.
Manufactured by Siebensachen in Germany in a village on the edge of the Black Forest, the chime is mounted inside premium beech wood that has been fashioned into a perfect sphere. The only hole in the ball is where the wind-up key enters and although the mechanism remains totally hidden the music will always escape the boundaries of the beech case.
A 20mm diameter metal ring can sit unseen underneath the ball to allow it to rest still on a shelf or mantlepiece.
92mm diameter, solid beech, waxed
