Description

This Antique Colonial merchant chest was first crafted in the first half of the 19thc. using Burmese teak.
This chest was originally made for a European, to be used as a secure chest for transporting valuables, on the arduous journeys around India.
These chests make superb coffee tables as well as conversation pieces. It canít fail to spark your imagination about the stories this could tell of its perilous travels either by cart, wagon, elephant, or sailing ship.
The top is multi boarded joined by blacksmith made iron protection straps. The ĺ lids opens on a hinge to reveal a vast open storage area.
The exterior has the blacksmith made iron corners and long strap hinges. The lock plate has a pair of decorated iron hasps.
This lovely trunk is finished all the way around and so can be used away from the wall. These are especially good as interesting coffee tables.
