The Nickel Box was the first caged burr made by Maurice Vigouroux with these large ebony boxes.
It shares its nice little dots with the Chrysalide puzzle, except that here, the dots are made of beech instead of aluminium.
This copy comes directly from Maurice’s own collection and has been very carefully polished.
The design is a very good one. Difficult enough, but in theory, it can be disassembled and reassembled completely without the help of Burrtools.

Auction rules : it is not allowed to cancel one's bid. If anyone does so, the whole auction will be restarted.

Design : Donald Osselaer
Manufacturing: Maurice Vigouroux
Woods : ebony (cage), dark padauk (pieces). This kind of padauk is heavier and darker than the regular red padauk. It does not produce any white dust.
Internal corners cut by hand : 2
The cage is glued.
Size: 75x75x75mm (1 voxel = 12,5 mm)

Moves : 28+18+17 for the three first pieces.
Difficulty (disassembling) : quite difficult
Difficulty (reassembling) : difficult
