This is an original vintage hand made wooden book shaped secret hidden compartment box. It can also be used to hold other valuables such as jewelry, money, rings etc. It is painted black with metallic gold pages. It measures 5 1/2 inches or 14 cm in height, 4 1/2 inches or 11.5 cm in width and 1 1/4 inches or 3.5 cm in thickness. The inside secret hidden compartment measures 3 inches or 7.5 cm by 2 1/4 inches or 5.5 cm. The book spine slides down and the front cover slides sideways to reveal the secret compartment inside. This is a great way to hide treasures or money. It has a small chip on the wood on the thin area of the faux back over corner. Other than that, it is in very good condition for its age.
