Est. value: $600

Winning bid: $1,753

Lot Closed (Photo)

Designer/Maker: Rainer Popp

Size: 10x6x2cm

Notes: Six steps to open the blass lock. An excellent example of why Popp locks are so popular. Very light wear (slight tarnish in places and a couple very small scratches); otherwise excellent condition. Includes original solution guide.

 

Lot 5343 - Double Semi-Maze

Est. value: $200

Winning bid: $698

Lot Closed (Photo)

Designer/Maker: R. D. Rose

Size: 6x6x4.5cm

Notes: Two pieces slide around the inside of the cylindrical maze. The goal is to rotate the pieces a full 360 and find the place where the pieces fit flush with the cylinder (they do not come free). It's also satisfying to simply enjoy the interesting movement of the pieces. Made from anodized aluminum. Includes hand-written note from the designer.
