Antique Oak Storage Chest
A good large antique oak box dating from the mid 19th century. It is very well made with dovetail joints and an attractive planked top with cleated ends. It has metal carrying handles and a plinth around the bottom which has later been raised by boards on the base to keep the floor dry. It is a good size for a coffee table, end of the bed storage or toy trunk.
It is in good condition for its age. It is strong and sturdy and it is generally clean and tidy inside. It has its original metal strap hinges and there have been some strips of wood put inside to strengthen the box at some point. There are signs of use and age, some general knocks marks and minor splits but nothing detrimental and it has a good aged patina and displays very well. It has been cleaned and gently polished and is ready for use.
