Rising from an ancient Japanese tradition, the 12 Step Japanese Trick Box forged its way into the present, a puzzle that now circulates as a collectible, enchanting all those it encounters. Its marquetry was conceived by a master woodworker from the Hakone region in Japan during the late 1800's, and each box displays a slight variation of the same master design. Be warned, this charming wooden craft is not for the weary of mind: in order to access its secret chamber, its owner must decipher the 12-step unlocking mechanism by sliding its wooden slats in just the right way, and in just the right order. But the allure of this wooden puzzle doesn't end with its intricately designed lock; It doubles as a ravishing shelf front ornament, dazzling its onlookers with its elaborate geometrical veneer and pleasing wooden simplicity. Fill your home with this small treasure, and let your creativity run amok.
