Not only is this a lovely, sculptural piece worthy of your mantel (made in Germany on the edge of the Black Forest nonetheless!), but it’s also a rolling music box that plays some of Mozart’s most well-known melodies. Adults will admire it from afar (doesn’t everyone need a pretty li’l tchotchke on their mantle?) and children will enjoy turning the key and rolling it back and forth on the floor while you tend to holiday business. Just think of the hours of entertainment in store!
Do you love the word “tchotchke” as much as we do? Here’s how to pronounce it + where you’ll want to pick up this gorgeous, modern music box.

Tchotchke – one of the coolest words EVER! Say it like this: “chach-key” – originally derived from a Slavic word for “toys”.
