After removing the plastic cover and installing the clover glass, the inside of my flat top base is finished! I used a 1620 title page from Livre de Fleurs for the bottom plate~ do watch the video and listen to this gorgeous box, its so fabulous! If you decide to go for a movement yourself, (or one of their beautiful boxed movements) be sure and tell them Rachael sent ya!

Finishing the inside of my Flat Top Casket
www.BetterMusicBoxes.com . There is no way I would ever buy a music box, old or new, without being able to HEAR it first...I mean, it makes sense doesn't it? wanting to actually HEAR what something sounds like...when the whole purpose of the thing is to make sound????? Yet....I could find no one on the internet that sold boxes who had videos or actual sound samples!!!! That is, until I came across Rick, Steve & Roger at BMB. They have sound samples of all of the movements they sell~ and hey, if they dont have the tune your looking for, they'll make it for you! They prefer to talk on the phone~ which to me, is a sign they are honest, and committed to their work. The customer matters to them, and they bend over backwards for them. Ill never buy another movement from anyone else, that's for sure! So last year, I ordered a 72 note Sankyo movement of the Moldau . Oh My Goodness! The arrangement is even better than the 12 minute original!!!! And even better, its going in the bottom of my flat top casket!!
