This is one of several smaller and larger versions of this box. All are very nicely made and quite attractive. This one has two secret-opening drawers, one on each side of the box. The drawer release mechanism is extremely well concealed while simple at the same time. The drawers are spring loaded and pop out when the release mechanism is pressed. Several puzzle collectors with large collections say they have never seen this type of mechanism before.
These boxes are available from William Strijbos.
