New and Old Treasures
The Swiss Chalet jewelry box on the right in this picture is over 50 years old and was given to me when I was a little girl by some friends of my grandmother. They bought this one and one for my sister while they were traveling in Switzerland. I visited Switzerland last fall and when I was in a shop in Lucerne, I saw the one on the left. Of course I had to buy it because it reminded me so much of the one I have cherished for so many years. A leg is missing on the old one and at some point one of the window shutters must have fallen off, so it got taped back on, but I think it's in pretty good shape for its age. Look how similar they are, right down to the little pebbles on the roof! Oh and my new one is also a music box.
