Valentina the Ballerina Music Box by Marcel Wanders for Alessi

Part of the Circus series by Alessi, Wanders presents 'Valentina' a music box that winds via turning the elephant.

Ballerina is a female pachyderm with a penchant for ballet. She dances with her partner, a little mouse enchanted by her talent, performing a pirouette atop a golden ball. The platform on which the duo perform their dance routine houses the mechanism that produces the tune, for which Wanders chose Entry of the Gladiators by Julius Fučík.

Wanders & Alessi have produced a series of products that represent the major persona of the circus. Each item has a level of industrial design and craftsmanship that places emphasis on the best that Alessi (and a very few manufacturers) can produce.

"The circus is larger than life. The pageantry and astonishment from what you see, hear, and feel never leaves you. That one-of-a-kind magical feeling is now celebrated through this collection."- Marcel Wanders
