This auction is for a Beautiful Vintage Marquetry Two Move Puzzle Box with Two Adorable Scotties on the top, Made in Occupied Japan.

The box has a simple two step solution, the second step of which is the removal of a hidden drawer.


***PLEASE NOTE:  I re-examined the box in response to a specific question.  When I did so, something seems to have gotten a bit off kilter.  I think the drawer liner was secured to the outer shell of the drawer.  As a result, move one of the puzzle will lock and unlock the liner, but size the drawer outer shell is no longer connected to the liner, the shell can pull out independently of the lock state of the liner.  This is probably a simple repair but I could not find any glue reside related to this issue, so I decided to leave it up to the buyer to repair as he or she sees fit.  Please see the two bottom-most photos below the description that I added to illustrate this issue.  The box is offered as found / as seen / as described with respect to this issue, as well as the minor condition issues noted just below.

The box is otherwise very nice condition, with a few spots of minor wear on the finish, and a couple of very minor chips on the marquetry veneer, with a bit heaver chips on the bottom.  Please review the top photo and then scroll all the way down past this description to view the additional large clear photos and make your own assessment of the condition.

This great looking Mid Century puzzle box is about 5 3/4" x 3 5/8" x 2 1/4". 

The side panel of the drawer is stamped "MADE IN OCCUPIED JAPAN" as seen in a closeup photo.

At the time of the original listing, this was one of two Japanese marquetry boxes being listing.  We also have other Japanese and other marquetry boxes in our ebay store.
