Lot 5075 - Puzzled by the Anvil

Phase: 36

Last Bid Date: 10/1/2017

Est. Value: $400

Winning bid: $1,150

Puzzled by the Anvil by Tracy Wood Clemons (The Green Eyed Lady)

Designer/Maker: Tracy Wood Clemons (The Green Eyed Lady)

Size: 28x21x21

Notes: Open the box and release the anvil! The original craft cocktail bar in Houston, "Anvil Bar and Refuge", remains one of the best locally and is also recognized nationally on many top 10 lists. This puzzle box was commissioned as a tribute to the bar. On top of the box sits an anvil which is fixed in place. There are eight knobs surrounding the box, and they may wiggle a bit but do not turn. You must find the way to open the box. This requires approximately 12 moves to accomplish, including a very sneaky move to get things started. Once opened, the box reveals an internal packing puzzle of four pieces forming a cubic structure. Further inside there is a special object you will discover as well. Finally you must figure out how to release the anvil on top and you have completed the puzzle. The puzzle is a lot of fun and includes 3 separate goals - open the box, mix up and resolve the packing puzzle, and free the Anvil from the top.

Made from mahogany, walnut, and oak. Limited edition, #2 of 2. Some moves are tight. Includes original certificate and solution sheet. Two copies were commissioned, one for the collector and one intended for the "Anvil" bar. However that plan has changed, and the funds from the sale of the second copy will now go to a worthy cause and will not be used personally.
