    Description

    John Lennon Limited Edition Music Box 1 of 70 (1983). In 1983 Yoko Ono supervised the making of 70 music boxes in Bermuda as gifts to a select few radio and music personalities It's made of Bermudian cedar, John's favorite wood, and has an engraved silver plaque that reads "MILK & HONEY, LOVE, YOKO & SEAN, XMAS '83, N.Y.C." The 4 AA battery-driven cassette player plays a home recording of John singing Grow Old With Me , which was written in July 1980 in Bermuda and dedicated to Yoko.

    This particular box was given to Bill Levy personally by Yoko and is numbered 1/70, engraved on the bottom with the date 12/25/83. Levy was Creative Vice President of Polygram Records and had worked with Yoko on several album projects in the '80s, including Milk & Honey. It comes with a lyric printout of John's original song, a promotional folder for John's lithograph collection of hand-written lyrics, and a two-page account of events leading to Yoko's presentation of the gift to Levy. This exquisite piece, which measures 9" x 6" x 3", may not be one-of-a-kind, but it's pretty close!
