Ticking watch box

A watch is locked inside the box, where it can still be heard ticking. The watch is then produced from elsewhere. The box is well constructed and finished, with inlaid wood and mother of pearl on the outside, and purple velvet and paper on the inside. There is a mirror on the inside of the lid.
