Description

This Antique Colonial merchant chest was made in the 19thc. for a wealthy merchant or a family of great importance. Made of a timber like teak, that is strong and durable to survive the rigours of the perilous journeys the owners of this had to take. It was made to store valuables, gold, silver, silks and other precious items. The chest is a rectangular shape with a lifting lid that opens to reveal a full area for storage as well as a smaller compartment for smaller objects. The outside has lovely brass decorative straps that were secured to the chest not only for decoration, but also to provide strength and protection as it was hauled around on the wagons and sailing ships as it was transported.

This will make a wonderful coffee table, that will not only look fantastic but also an interesting conversation piece. Imagine the stories this Antique Colonial merchant chest could tell!
