    "By their nature, lidded boxes invite being handled, opened, closed, then opened and closed again. The very presence of a lid suggests there may be some small but cherished item inside. In addition to the visual aesthetic, lidded containers can tease other senses as well. The holder can savor the sound and feel of the lid's fit. Depending on the design and intended use of container, as you remove the lid you may experience a quick, decisive "pop," a non-descript "squish," a long, gentle vacuum tug, or the no-resistance fit of a lid designed to be removed with only one hand. Indeed, the fit of the lid may be the primary fascination in many lidded containers - one that will never show in any photograph." ~ Kip Christensen
