A Secret Drawer

Post by corban.skillander » Mon 19 Jan, 2015 3:12 pm

I realise that this might not be what everyone is expecting on this site, but I realise that many of you are intellectuals, and may have some kind of response that may be beneficial.

A friend of mine recently posted this on another website, and I am trying to help him get an answer. Any information and/or suggestions are welcomed.

"So one of my family friends died recently (She was 92). Now, being that age, you tend to accumulate a lot of stuff. And in her case, I mean a LOT. She moved from a huge manor house with about 10 bedrooms, to a 2 bedroom house, and took a lot of her stuff with her. So, sorting through all of her stuff, I came upon a desk known as a "Davenport". Those of you who know what that is, probably know what's coming.
So sorting through the drawers, I came upon one that wouldn't open. I just assumed it was a false drawer, until my mum told me she'd seen it opened before, it had a secret catch or something somewhere.
So, naturally, I went about trying to open it. I spent 3 hours opening drawers partially in different combinations, moving drawers to different positions, checking for buttons, levers... You get the idea.
I eventually gave up, and decided to Google it. You know what I found?
Absolutely nothing. Not a single person has a video on youtube, not one guy has written a blog or post about a way to find out. I get that people want to keep it a secret, but this is seriously some Area 51 stuff here. For all I know there are diamonds or piles of gold in it or something, and I can't open this stupid flipping drawer."

Here are some images (Please excuse the language):

(I wasn't sure which would make the image appear, so I tried both :) )

It seems that neither of them shows the image. Above is a link.

Thank you in advance!

You forgot a "[" in the ending BBCode tag.

Did your friend find anything?
