Foolhouse Treasure boxes were born out of tireless retrieval of my Tupperware containers and shoeboxes that kept disappearing into children’s bedrooms to become vessels for much coveted collections of wishbones, shells, car-parts and so-called precious detritus that just had to be kept! Little did I know how much adults would love them too!
Made of Multiply and lined with a patchwork of colour, the treasure boxes are a tangible testament to the raw beauty of wood. Comprised of 4 individual compartments, they are perfect for separating all important treasures. The dividers can be glued in or removed if you need the box for bigger curiosities. The lid slides and is operated by a pull hole which can double to take a padlock. The kids love this!
This Treasure Box is adorned with our Curios and Oddities moniker – what jewelery,treasures or fossils go in it are are up to you or your gift recipient!
Make sure you pop to the hardware store and get them a padlock too! ( Padlock not included )
My brother, 40+ now! Used to love locking up his most precious things in a secret wooden box – I know there were old Valentine’s cards and fireworks in there!
Due to the natural materials used to make this box, there can be slight colour variations in the plywood and the appearance of the engraving – Sometimes the timber batches produce a deep sepia engraving and sometimes a warm caramel. Ahh the nature of nature! Also – you will notice if you’ve had time to read this far! that some of our lids have had the illustrations photoshopped onto them on our website instead of showing the actual engraving – it is because we are far better at making boxes than taking photographs! Usually we are so excited to get the finished product off to the customer that we forget to take a snap! But where possible I have uploaded a close up of the real thing!
The overall box measurements are 234mmL x 234mmW x 93mmH. Internal individual compartment sizes are 95mmH x 100mmW x 65mmH.
