Stemming from Japanese tradition, the Trick Box was first created by a master woodworker during the late 1800's, today a well-sought collectible. The wooden craft features distinctive Yosegi marquetry designs across its faces, each box showing a slight variation of the same decorative pattern. With its multi-directional designs, this hand-made craft serves as a stellar coffee table piece, luring onlookers into its charming and unending mystique. Presenting you with 21 steps to completion—the most challenging puzzle of all Japanese trick boxes—, the owner of this intricate puzzle is up against a real test: each step to unlocking the box must be completed in a fixed order, requiring that the correct wooden slat is shifted in the right direction, until you can access the hallowed inside. Once you've overcome the grand challenge, you're duly rewarded with a special chamber where you can store your cherished valuables, for no one else to see. Set this handsome piece inside your home, and marvel in its delightful mystery.
Note: this advanced puzzle box can be difficult to open. Please take your time, be patient, and be gentle with it!
