Product Description

What Everybody Wants
1955 Secret Vintage Booksafe
by Walter Greenwood
and Foolhouse!

The chapter heading in this book is ‘FISHY BUSINESS’!

So I couldn’t resist carving out two cheeky koi fish – perfect for display or hiding jewellery in.

The perfect gift for a fisherman or one who needs to know that there are plenty more fish in the sea!

A perfect decoy to fool burglars! Hide a gift, jewelry, cufflinks, escape money or pocket money in it!

Foolhouse’s character-filled vintage books are rescued and sourced for their alluring titles and covers – transformed into unique secret treasure book safes. Each one is a limited edition – a one-off! All are given a Foolhouse bookplate so that you can write a message to yourself or dedicate the instant heirloom to a lucky gift recipient!

All books come complete with their original inscriptions or bookplate awards and are personality filled with individual weathering and foxing giving them a unique – all the better to fool those burglars with and easily passed over on the book shelf!

Every Foolhouse booksafe is lovingly carved and glued and enhanced by vintage ribbon bookmarks. Plus, inside every book, a vintage illustration is specifically chosen to line the secret pocket.

These Foolhouse Secret Vintage Booksafes are a unique bespoke gift for anyone of any age.

These have even been used for hiding engagement rings in as a proposal!

The quirkier shaped carvings lend themselves to hiding appropriate sized secrets to fit

Book pockets vary in depth. This particular book pocket is 16mm deep.
