The true jewel of Ugears new collection of wooden models is an exquisite Mechanical Treasure Box for jewellery and notes. Mysterious and intriguing puzzle boxes, known in many cultures and especially popular in Victorian England, could not pass by our attention. Beautiful recognizable Ugears design and traditional step-by-step puzzle give you the Treasure Box – delight to the eye and food for brain. The delicate through-carved work of its lid and sides invites you to gain a glimpse into the mystery that the moving gears conceal. Although only the one who can solve the secrets of the puzzle-box will get to enjoy the treasure of beautiful mechanics in its action. One would imagine that in order to open the box, we’d need a key – and the key is right there, beautifully embedded in the carved lid. All you need to do to take it out is to slightly turn the key clockwise. Although, getting the key is only a part of the puzzle. To set the gears in motion, before taking the key out, you want to unblock the mechanism that lifts the lid by turning the key counter-clockwise. Intricate layered through-carved design of the box allows you to observe the work of gears while solving your puzzle step by step. When all the secrets are revealed and the box is opened, inside you will find a small compartment for jewellery, notes and other small items. Ugears Mechanical Treasure Box set can become a perfect present on its own or – assembled by you – to contain a mysterious gift for your loved ones within. You may be sure, your treasures and secrets are safe with the new Ugears Mechanical Box like in your own home vault box. Made from sustainable wooden materials the kit has all you need for assembly: a set of high-quality plywood boards with precisely cutout parts, full-color, detailed step by step, truly easy to follow instructions and several spare parts inside. The first thing you notice when opening the box is a sweet faint scent of wood. It’s natural and healthy. The model is made of a high quality plywood tested in European laboratories and also approved for use in the production of furniture for children. No glue and special tools are needed for putting the model together. You can assemble it at home on the table. Fits together like a puzzle without glue or special tools or even toothpicks thanks to Ugears’ patented plywood joints. Number of components: 190 Estimated time of assembly: 4-5 hours
