secret box 083 open rszd 88dpi.jpg (85529 bytes)  Beautifully crafted Secret lock, key-less boxes
An excellent gift - for ladies or gentlemen!

Very well made by by Aspiration in India, these boxes can only be opened by those who know the secret (an easily-removed sticker explains how).  The hinges and lock fittings are both in brass.  Hinges are discretely positioned at the back, and the lock fittings are internal and out of sight
New stock just arrived - Our secret boxes are in stock and ready for immediate despatch
These high quality boxes are lovingly made and beautifully finished.  The wood used is sustainably-sourced sheesham wood from India.
Shesham wood is part of the rosewood family. It is durable and fast-growing, reaching maturity in 15-20 years (compared to 80-90 years for hardwoods like teak, and 7-10 years for soft woods).
These make excellent gifts for men or women.  The natural but simple beauty of the wood shines through.  They are great for keeping valuable little bits and bobs safely and tidily out of the way
The rich grain of the wood will always vary from one box to the next, so no two boxes will be exactly the same.  This uniqueness enhances the beauty of each piece.
