Nest of Boxes is a prop consisting of increasingly smaller hinged boxes that fit inside each other.

Typically a coin, ring, or other small object is vanished and then later found inside the smallest of the boxes.

It was described in Nouvelles Récréations mathématiques et physiques by Gilles-Edme Guyot in 1769.
