We believe this is quite a rare piece. I was always told that this specific type of open fronted dove tail joints , using this type of timber, means it is probably from the West Indies. But this is not guaranteed...
This storage box is genuine apart from the carrying handles which have been replaced.
It is heavy but on casters so easily moved
Let's try to describe it. The top is made of mahogany, old signs of use and scratching. The box itself is made from what appears to be cedar wood standing on four turned feet with English casters . The lift up top is attached to the main part of the box with the original iron hinges. The box is free standing and is very versatile . A lock but no working key.
