A Chance Meeting
We're very proud to offer this poetic Japanese puzzle box from master craftsman and designer Tatuo Miyamoto.
A Chance Meeting is celebrated for its underlying symbolism as well as its hidden mechanism. The lid is adorned with a lonely heart and the box is locked by a common clover. What's hiding inside? You'll need more than luck to find out. The solution tells a story that connects to the name of the piece and like all great puzzle boxes, the secret is almost too good not to share...
The design of this puzzle gives it immediate shelf appeal and the metaphoric mechanism makes it perfect for demonstration. It's considered a modern classic for good reason.
Handcrafted from Oak with striking highlights of Purple Heart. Measures approximately 3.4 x 3.4 x 3 inches. Secret Compartment measures almost
