Why We Love This

A metal deed box originally from the offices of the Royal Navy, formed and painted to appear as a leather-bound book. Important documents could be discreetly housed in this wonderfully deceptive box. A hinge on the side of the box allows for quick access. The book is marked "Admiralty Navy Documents" and dated "August 1870."
