Description

Limoges Grand Piano Box

Handcrafted and hand-painted in France, this grand piano Limoges porcelain box was created especially for the Met Opera Shop. It features a hinged lid which can be opened, with hand-painted musical notes inside and a painting of a piano player and orchestra on the lid.

Originally Limoges boxes were created to hold snuff and candies. Later they became a fashion statement and an indication of social status with the European aristocracy. Today they are used to mark life’s special occasions or collected as objects of lasting beauty. Each piece is trimmed with 22K gold and made in Limoges, France.

History

Music Notes

Most Western music is based on a system of notation that evolved around 1600 out of earlier practices. The starting point for any opera is the full score, which contains all individual voices and instruments arranged in a specific order on the page. The written music—representing the sounds a composer creates in his head—then comes to life performed by singers onstage and played by the orchestra.
