This chest really is extra large and quite unique; I can just picture it in some castle or country estate. Dating from the mid-1700's, it must have come from quite a wealthy family to be able to afford such a special carved chest. The front panels are quite formal, and there are two doors (one on each side of the chest) with a lock and key. Unfortunately the keys have been lost, but the doors still shut nicely. The base and the lift up lid are also quite substantial. There's heavy hand forged hardware holding the lid and a pincher lock and key on the lid which still works. The original "treasure box" on the inside of the chest is missing, and there's a crack on the lid as well as some slight separation between the planks on the front of the chest which can be seen in the pictures.
