One of Moominmamma’s signature features is her black handbag; when Moominmamma lost her handbag, Moominpappa said he’d never seen her without it. The bag contains only some most important items: candies, stomach powder, string and dry socks. She strongly dislikes losing her handbag as the items in the bag often are needed in a hurry.
This bag has served as the inspiration for this music box. The black music box comes with silver ornaments and a pearl handle and the lid closes with a small metal latch. A drawer can be found below the main compartment, both lined with magenta-coloured velvet felt. Inside the lid is an oval mirror and a key figurine in front of the mirror, at the back of the main compartment. By winding up the mechanism, you can see the key rotating to a merry, moominlike tune that is played with the tinkling sound characteristic to music boxes. Whenever it’s time to stop the music, secure the treasures and trinkets inside the box by closing the lid and the small metal latch.
