MINIATURE MUSICAL CAROUSELS

Crafted by hand from the finest materials, 'Balgara' miniature musical carousels embody all the beauty of an amusement park carousel - exclusive detail, colourful lighting, joyous movement and wonderful music - but small enough to fit on a table.

Each of the eighteen horses has a finely detailed body, mane, tail, saddle, rein and stirrups designed and created in intricate detail by master jewellers. The horses rise and descend as they travel around the carousel, accompanied by music that brings back childhood memories of fairgrounds and circuses. A sleigh and gondola add to the charm and beauty.

Each carousel is a work of art and has a personality of its own, taking several months to produce. As a result, they are only produced in limited quantities each year. Each carousel is individually named and hallmarked, guaranteeing its uniqueness and authenticity.

The Kindertraum ("Child's Dream") carousel was created exclusively for Wempe's 125th Anniversary. It is a unique piece, crafted from gold and silver, studded with gems and pearls, and playing four different melodies. Its genesis required the work of fourteen assistants, 9 lbs. of sterling silver, 2 oz. gold, 134 diamonds, 37 pearls, and eighteen months of passionate dedication.
