The notes the angel is holding in its hands appear to be dancing up and down. It embodies most impressively the magic that music generates. It awakens emotions without the need for words. But what is the melody hiding within the notes on the stave? With the first notes of “Happy Birthday”, the composer strikes up what is probably the best-known birthday song – to mark the anniversary of the Eleven Dot Angels and the birthdays of all their admirers. Lovingly fashioned by hand the figurine expresses the skill of the craftsman in creating an exclusive work of art. This angel will bestow on its owner the magic of music throughout their life.

Two girls in summer dresses play on a meadow covered with bright, colorful flowers. White clouds punctuate the blue sky, and birds chirp as they fly past - it is a spring day straight out of a picture book. The scene is accompanied by the German song “Kommt ein Vogel geflogen”. This music box is an affectionate tribute to the warmer seasons. The scene can be enhanced by other small figurines, such as small birds or rabbits.
