It is a superstition amongst certain drawing room circles that a box decorated with an octopus provides the contents of said box an added protection endowed by the very nature of the octopus itself. And that any box bearing an octopus, will protect its secrets and deter against unwanted trespass and thievery.

We here at the Emporium make no claims as to whether these assertions are in any way accurate, but assert that either way, it is a lovely box in which to keep your jewelry, keepsakes or other valuables.

It is at home in either a ladies boudoir or Victorian naturalist’s desk. It makes a lovely gift for any lover of cephalopods or nature enthusiast. It’s potential to store various contents is almost limitless, so we will refrain from detailing them here.

The Octopus Box is decorated with an early biological illustration of a lovely octopus and measures approximately 7 x 7 x 3 inches and closes with a simple clasp.

International shipping is available, please contact us for a quote.
