The puzzle box, personal secret box or trick box originated from the Hakone region of Central Japan in the early 19th century. Known as Himitsu-Bako, these original puzzle boxes were heavily decorated with traditional Japanese parquetry patterns called Yosegi-zaiku (parquetry is a method we still use to create the lids of our own Timber-Treasures puzzle boxes). Puzzle boxes have no apparent lock, and only through the adjustment and manipulation of the outer pieces of the box itself can it be opened or closed.
A Timber-Treasures best seller. This delicately hand made box is in the shape of a tortoise with a parquetry lid fashioned in naturally coloured, vibrant woods which has a unique and intriguing opening sequence. An inexpensive, unusual gift that provides a safe and secure place to store important trinkets, jewellery or maybe some spare change.
