Clever and Lovely Antique Puzzle Box

Regular price $55.00

I find this such a charming and satisfying thing, lovingly made by hand long ago, with the carved pieces inside needing to be arranged just so in order for the lid to close, with the piece nailed to the inside of the lid fitting perfectly in the gap, announcing one's success in solving the puzzle! A relatively simple thing, but so right, and the solid wood pieces, walnut I believe, are beautiful things in and of themselves, and nice and heavy. There is a split to the lid, but thanks to the piece on the underside it is holding together fine., and the hinges are in fine shape. Very sweet.
