Elm & Teak Book Box

Subcategory: Boxes

An interesting elm & teak Book Box with secret method to open.

Aside from being shaped like a book, this box has no decoration which is perhaps purposeful to give no clues as to how or where to open it. Despite its plain look this would be a useful box for storing important papers etc. and, unless the method is revealed, it's not easy to locate the opening method. Mid 19th Century.
