Enchanting sounds in the heart of Utrecht
The Donkerstraat is only a few minutes' walk from Utrecht Central Station, exactly between the Utrecht Conservatory and Museum Speelklok. A very old and musical part of Utrecht near the Dom. At no. 21 I have decorated a fairytale shop window. The space behind it is open for visitors about once a month. This is not the workshop, but a showroom!
You will find all kinds of wooden music boxes from all over the country, with many different melodies. It is possible to buy a box immediately and take it with you, or, if your choice is not listed, to place an order.
Each box already contains a melody. If it's quiet, I can exchange a melody on the spot, if you prefer a specific box with a different melody. If it's busy, I can reserve the box for you and put the melody of your choice in it later.
Even if you would like an engraving in it, I can reserve the box for you and engrave it later in the workshop. Usually you can pick it up after a few days. Shipping is also possible.
You can also see and hear a very special music box that I bought myself at the beginning of this year. It is a Polyphon from Leiptzig that is over 100 years old. With interchangeable music discs. The music box starts to play when you throw a Penny into it!
So welcome to come and see, listen, and of course all boxes are for sale immediately. You can pay in cash or by pin.
There is coffee, tea and soda and some refreshments.
11:00 a.m. to approximately 17:30 p.m. (on Sundays from 13:XNUMX p.m.)
