Some of Charles and Marie's products are a bit too precious for my taste, but I like this spherical wooden music box. It's $85.

This hand crafted wooden sphere houses an 18 key chime that is forever enclosed inside, but a simple turn of the elegantly shaped key has it unleash its power and suddenly Voi, Che Sapete from Le Nozze Del Figaro (or The Marriage of Figaro) is being broadcast from inside the sphere, using the woods natural resonance enhancing characteristics.
