I was thinking more along the lines of a slot machine.

A slot machine does have a lock - otherwise anyone could go up and take the money out.

This is one of the riddles exchanged between Gollum and Bilbo in The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien.
I don't know if it predates that book but it may well do.

A box without hinges, key, or lid,
Yet inside golden treasure is hid.

In Catalan we have the rhyming riddle "A little white box which you can open but you cannot close". I always liked that!
