This Heritage House AMC Christmas Bounty Pattern Musical Trinket Box was made in Japan of ivory porcelain with Christmas designs and a music box built into the lid of the box that plays the tune 'Silent Night'. The box is approximately 2 1/4-inches tall overall (including the lid) with the bottom of the box being 1 5/8-inches deep and 3 5/8-inches in diameter at the rim. On the top of the lid is a Christmas bundle of fruit (pears, apples), holly clusters, acorns and leaves tied together by a red ribbon, the edge of the lid is scalloped and gold-leaf trimmed and on the inside of the lid is a covered music box. The music box is covered with a round wood insert that is covered with red velvet with the winding mechanism key poking through the cover for easy winding. The tune that is played when the key is wound is 'Silent Night'. On the front and back of the bottom portion of the trinket box is a smaller version of the Christmas bundle that is on the top of the lid with extensions on each side of the bundle with additional fruit, holly and acorns with ribbon. On the inside of the bottom portion of the box is a small bundle of a pear, a sprig of holly and an acorn with leaves and a strip of red ribbon. On the bottom of the box in gold-leaf lettering is 'Melodies', 'The Celebration Collection', under that is a drawing of a rose with leaves, under that is 'Silent Night', 'Collector Edition', 'Fine Porcelain', 'Heritage House, Inc.'. Also on the bottom of the box is an gold oval paper label with black lettering 'CRAFTED IN JAPAN'.
This musical trinket box is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, crazing or scratches and the designs are colorful and unfaded. The musical mechanisms are all in good working order and the tune 'Silent Night' sounds lovely.
