Antique Oak Storage Chest
A good large antique oak box dating from the late 19th century. It is very well made with dovetail joints and an attractive planked top with moulded edge. It has large metal carrying handles and a plinth around the bottom with metal strapping. It has hand painted initials on the top "G.H.A". 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 generally clean and tidy inside. The sides have suffered from shrinkage splits over time which have been reinforced with metal brackets on the inside. Some of the metal strapping on the bottom of the chest has been replaced at some point. There are general signs of age and use, some general knocks and marks 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.
