Company History

In 1941, Mark and Rose Borus immigrated to the United States from Europe. Their vision was to offer imported giftware items that would be high quality with excellent value. The firm was named Splendid Novelty Company and specialized in unique gifts that were both musical and non-musical. In 1975, upon Mark Borus’ sudden death, his daughter Hedy Kagan and her husband Harvey Kagan, continued to run and grow the business. Hedy’s greatest strength has been her ability to design exclusive pieces and bring innovation to the marketplace. By 1985, her designs had become best suited to musical jewelry boxes, at which point the company was renamed Splendid Music Box Company. In 1995, after receiving MBAs from New York University, Hedy and Harvey’s children Kerry and Michael Rosen joined the business full time as the family’s third generation in the business. In 2000, Jamie Erin Rosen was born and has contributed significantly to design, sales, and public relations as she enjoys growing into the fourth generation. Splendid Music Box Company is proud of its long family history and brand reputation for high quality, uniqueness, and excellent value, thanks to the continuing creativity and outstanding designs of Hedy Kagan.
