Plenty of tactile old pine, dove tail construction, especially nice moulded lid edge with bread boarded ends, worn and scuffed, some historic woodworm holes, minimal, treated as always.
Original pewter escutcheon, but no lock or key.
With a rather large top and good storage space this chest would be suitable as a coffee table or as intended to store all matter of things.
A perfect piece for hall, landing, bedroom or usable as a window seat and coffee table.
