EBONY PUZZLE BALL 1880

Fine 3.5" (63cms) carved ebony puzzle ball. The concentrically-turned, overlapping circular design conceals the fact that contained within is a section which can be pushed out. When this is achieved and the lid taken off the container a coin (or other valuable) contained within can be released. A Victorian method of 'safe keeping'. Rare to find in good condition as this one. Often the wood warps with age, so that the section which comes out lies proud when pushed back, thus defeating the object of the item.
