Japanese Trick Chests

Our family at www.PuzzleBoxWorld.Com have been intrigued by the ingenious opening mechanisms of the Japanese Trick Chest.

Beside their obvious beauty, these artistic pieces have an important functionality of keeping your valuables safe. Various Secret Trick chests may have secret drawers, false bottoms or facings and drawers that must be opened in sequence to find hidden spaces.

The availability of these pieces are very limited in number but our family at www.PuzzleBoxWorld.Com will do our best to bring this unbelievably unique craft to you. We find these items are a wonderful addition to our Puzzle Box Collection.
