“What’s your pleasure, Mr Cotton?”
That is the opening line in the iconic 1987 movie, Hellraiser. In the movie, this idiosyncratic puzzle box is used as a mechanical and mystical device that acts as a door (or a key to a door) to another plane of existence or dimension.
The Hellraiser Puzzle Box is not really a puzzle because it is static. However, it is handcrafted meticulously following strict specifications of the original boxes as designed by the original designer, Simon Sayce. To ensure that the panels are etched to perfection, a professional etching house is used for the etching (as opposed to being done manually at home). With this displaying on your shelf, you would have the key to an unimaginable new world!
- Measures 3″ x 3″ x 3″ inches square
- Made of the best Mahogany wood
- Patterned with .005″ etched brass on the faces
- Sealed with many coats of quality lacquer to keep panels in place and prevent peeling
- 2 black-lacquered sides
The attention to detail is both awesome and impressive considering how long ago the movie was made. You won’t believe its been over 30 years already!
What you will receive:
- One Hellraiser Puzzle Box
- Comes packaged in brown butcher paper tied with red cotton string (just as of old)
- A letter of history and origin
- A signed Certificate of Authenticity (COA) with Lament Configuration proudly written on it (see image below)
- A puzzle box stand to proudly display the Hellraiser box
- A photo of its previous owner, Captain Elliot Spencer (4 by 6 lab printed picture)
As earlier stated, the puzzle box is not an actual puzzle. It is, however, a static prop replica. It is also a creative masterpiece that would not only make a great addition to a collector’s collection but would also be a terrific gift to any Hellraiser fan.
What are you waiting for? Solve the puzzle and unleash your pleasure!
