Delicate, and beautiful, the Antique Box from Ugears is designed to keep your treasures safe – and to become a treasure of your collection.
The Antique box is a small handsome chest for storing small miscellanea or jewellery. However, this is a very dry and basic description of this beautiful mechanical model. What makes it stand out from many similar fancies?
The sides of the model are covered with exquisite floral carving with oriental elements. In addition to its beautiful design, it keeps more than one handsome secret, and one of them is a unique mechanism built in the Box.
Pull the upper lid to activate three main blocks: two of which are mirrored mechanisms on each side that move and turn the upper compartments. The third mechanical block moves the lower drawer in the middle of the Box. After this little mechanical waltzing, you will gain access to six compartments ready to accommodate your treasures.
But the story doesn’t end there – find two extra secret compartments by discovering and pushing the button concealed on the backside.
To make sure your treasures are secured we equipped the Antique Box with a locking latch. When the latch is closed you can transport your box, turn it around and upside-down without worrying if it will open and spill its contents.
This unique, useful and beautiful Antique Box will be a nice decorative element in any home or a beautiful present for someone you care for.
As with all Ugears models, The Antique box comes in plywood boards with pre-cut details that you will assemble with your own hands. The assembly process is simple and fun: everything you need to know to put the model together is in a detailed illustrated step-by-step instruction manual in 11 languages. It also doesn’t need any glue or additional tools for assembly.

#WHY WE LOVE UGEARS?
We love Ugears for its beauty and challenge. Each of the models is a mechanical masterpiece that you get to put together yourself. For anyone who loves to make models, design or just tinker, this will make you want to do more. Patience and perseverance are required skills, not so much age. Although I would recommend that for kids under 13 years that they be helped out by an adult. Now just up to you to choose your model. Good Luck!
