“Il pleut bergère” Music Box


This music box is decorated with 18th-century fashion plates and Marie-Antoinette in the central part. The music it plays is the famous French song “Il pleut bergère”, written in 1780 by Philippe Fabre d’Eglantine with lyrics by Victor Simon.

The “bergère” (shepherdess) in question in this children’s song is in fact Marie-Antoinette herself. At the Queen’s Hamlet, which she had built, the Queen was surrounded by animals and notably sheep, which can still be found on the Grounds of the Palace of Versailles.
