Oriental Twin Die Boxes by Michael Baker(c. 2008)
Wow! What a beauty this Die Box is from Michael Baker. I thought his Oriental See-Through Block Box was amazing and this one is the same if not better and were only two of these created, so they are much rarer than the See-Through version.
This is one of two identical sets made. The block is 4 inches. The boxes are independent of the tray. The tray has a built-in sliding mechanism to make the loud clunk when you tilt it. The die can be made to appear or disappear at will, from either box. The die can be made to reappear inside a hat or another box, as with any Die Box routine. The interiors of the boxes, the top of the tray, and the block shell are lined with black velour. Front panels slide in aluminum tracks. Top lids fitted with solid brass continuous hinges. Brass knobs on lids. Custom decals, lacquer finish, and gold accents make this a real beauty.
This is also the first die box I have ever received where the sliding gimmick is secured during shipping. Normally it is let loose to move back and forth (and sometimes do damage during transit), but not with this one since it is secured in an easy and clever way. Michael Baker really does produce some of the best die boxes available today.
