A tiny bit of history about music boxes. A music box is a 19th/20th century automatic musical instrument that produces sounds by the use of a set of pins placed on a revolving cylinder or disc so as to pluck the tuned teeth of a steel-comb. They were developed from musical snuff boxes of the 18th century and called carillons à musique.
The original snuff boxes were tiny containers which could fit into a gentleman's waistcoat pocket. Following that design many music boxes have been made into jewelry one can wear or display to add to a music box collection.
