An elderly neighbor has entrusted me with the restoration of a primitive folk art shadowbox handcrafted by her grandfather in post-war Germany. She's never seen it work nor has any idea of what it used to do. The pictures below were taken to document the initial inspection. The restoration will include rewiring, replacing light bulbs, repairing or replacing the music box movement, rebuilding the frame and installing a Lexan window, plus several small structural repairs.
