Open the Box
This beautiful Japaneses puzzle box requires 12 steps in order to open it. Made in a variation of the kirichigae pattern. Japanese Wood Mosaic works are manufactured in Odawara,Hakone JAPAN. Natural colored wood materials are assembled together into a board with a beautiful mosaic pattern, and sheets of this board are pasted onto boxes for decoration. There are approximately 60 different mosaic patterns. Japanese wood mosaic is called “Yosegi” (Koyosegi). The “sun” in the name is a Japanese form of measurement. Each “sun” is approximately 3 centimetres in box length. The more steps in the name – the harder it is to open the box. The last part of the title is the name of the pattern displayed on the box. Because of the hand-made nature of the box, the picture or pattern may have slight variations. Comes in a pressboard gift box and includes a solution.
