This item is entirely from wood, and entirely handmade and handcarved by a talented handcrafter. It is lacquered for having a shiny , smooth and nice aspect, and for a long –lasting use. The opening of the secret magic ringholder puzzle box: This box is originally known as ‘’ the secret box’’. Why do they call it secret box ? Interesting. The secret relies on how you open it. After you open it, you can hide something inside. In the same time, many people leave it open, they do not lock it back, and they use it as a jewelry box or to put something special in it. You can see the professional handcarving in the main part, front part, and on the side of the box. You may be curious how you open it. Please look carefully at the pictures, those will help you understand the opening. The steps are the following : Hold it in your hands. The bottom part you push backwords. You slide down one of the elements carved like a leaf or which has some points. You slide down the middle one of them ( the middle of those 7 ) and there is the keyhole. Under the keyhole, you can see a small hole . There is the key. You take it out. You put the key in the position which is on the picture, and make one complete circle clockwise (turning it to the right) and then you may need to turn a little bit more (or to force while turning, don’t worry it will not break) It is unusual at the beginning, but then you will get used to it. You have to turn it until you hear a small click. Then the box opens and it is ready to hold your secrets. You put it back together in the reverse order you opened it. Exterior sizes: 8 cm x 6 cm x 4,7cm.
