Alice Sturzinger, LLC started in 1963 when Alice, who hailed from a little farming village in the German-speaking countryside in Switzerland, arrived in New York, only planning to be in the states a year or two to learn the language. One of her functions within the Swiss Benevolent Charity organization where she worked as an executive secretary was to sell music boxes as a fundraiser. Her first sale was a little red musical Christmas ball that played "Silent Night" when you pulled the string. With the success of that one sale, Alice began importing music boxes and built her business single-handedly. Fast forward more than 50 years and she is still going strong, adding the Murano glass jewelry from Venice to her product line a few years ago.
They offer dozens of necklaces, from delicate shimmering strands grouped together, to bright Murano glass beads that lend itself to a chunkier look. Many can be purchased with matching bracelets, earrings, and even rings. Popular colors include black, turquoise, red, gold and amethyst, and many sport a combination of colors. Some necklaces can be layered and worn long, while others are meant to stay against the neck.
Every piece is handcrafted by Venetian artists in Italy, from hand blowing each glass bead to stringing every necklace. Slight variations in each piece make each one a unique piece of art. For example, in the Carnival Collection, the main bead has sterling silver or gold foil blown into the glass. There are 24 collections of Murano glass jewelry, so you will find many pieces that are sure to please. Pieces are beautifully packaged and come with a guarantee of authenticity.
And as for the music boxes, well, they are just as exquisite! They are imported from Switzerland, Italy, and Germany. The craftsmanship is of excellent quality by craftsmen that take pride in their work. Music boxes fall into nine main categories: ballerina, fine, jewelry, musical instruments, musical paperweights, picture music boxes, ring boxes, and singing bird boxes.
The musical paperweights feature a box the that can include a personal photo. The fine music boxes get their name from the fine woods used to create them. Each jewelry box is lined with velvet; these boxes are really where you can see the attention to detail in the borders and brass feet. The picture boxes feature well-known and well-loved artists, like Renoir and Degas. They are stunning. And the Singing Birds are truly special. Precise German engineering is used to recreate birds singing using a system of slide whistles and bellows. The bird will move its beak and head while singing. They are offered in both an antique and a gold finish. The ballerina music boxes have delicate inlaid ballerinas on the lids. The music instrument music box is made to look like a classic grand piano and plays Beethoven's "Fur Elise." Even perhaps the most simple of boxes, the ring boxes, are beautiful works of art. Each features artwork on top, many featuring floral designs; one even has the Star of David.
