Mini Locking Drawer Box by Alan Warner(c. 1972)
This is a great drawer box from Alan Warner. One of his earliest works, so it lacks some of the ornateness of his more recent creations. However, as a wonderful and functional drawer box it is superb. Unlike many drawer boxes there are no outward signs of holes or levers or pins and you don’t need to tilt the box one way or another – it is much cleaner than those methods. Whenever Alan applies his talents to even the simplest of devices he always comes up with something a little better. This drawer box is no exception. In fact, it is so well built that you could have a member of the audience open it up to show the load appear!
If there is a downside with this box, its the size of the load it can hold. It only fits bridge size cards, since in the UK that is the standard size for cards – not those huge Poker sized cards that American’s are so fond of. Its always bigger in America, especially Texas! But as Alan Warner has repeatedly shown, mini is better and more beautiful!
