Because of the hand-made nature of the box, the picture or pattern may have slight variations.

Beautiful bit of craftsmanship AND it's tricky to solve.
DO NOT FORCE!!! If this is the same as the one I bought 20 years ago, no force necessary. Gently, gently; eh?
Save the solution in case you put it away for a few years.
ALSO: Be careful to replace the top in the correct orientation, if you don't and work the puzzle (even gently) you'll have a really hard time getting it off again.
