This is the UGears Antique Amber Box Wooden 3D Model, an delicate looking model piece that will keep any enthusiast entertained during the build and display beautifully after completion. This box is similar to the alternate Antique box made by UGears, but with amber inclusions that add depth, color and sophistication to the finished model.
The Antique box is a small handsome chest for storing small miscellaneous or jewelry. Your treasures will now be accommodated within four carved walls with delicate floral designs and oriental ornaments. But the main highlight of this model is five decorative elements made of natural amber. As you know, Ugears models are built without glue or additional tools. All you need to put your Amber Box together will be found inside the model’s package, including precious Amber stones that will be secured on the lid on the box with special clever fixtures.
The Amber Box is a mechanical puzzle, which means it is not just a pretty fancy item, but a smart mechanism. To set it in motion, you need to pull the lid that will 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. This step will grant you access to six compartments. Take it a step further and you will find two extra secret compartments. To discover those you need to feel the hidden button concealed on the back side of the Box – to accommodate your most valued treasures.
