Secure Payments By
A lovely antique ship's cabin chest made of solid teak with two large drawers, dating from the late 19th century. It has it's original stained finish which has worn over the years and a left a wonderful authentic surface with layers of history. It was originally purchased by the Trout Sisters of Hallsands from a beach sale of the contents of a locally marooned ship. This chest would have likely been found in the captain's cabin and it would have been joined to another identical using the clips on the side. There are small holes in the top where a bed would have been placed over the top of the two chests. It is a variation on campaign-style furniture with flush recessed brass handles and carrying handles on the side to enable it to be moved on and off of the ship. It is in good condition for its age and displays well. The drawers are clean and tidy and open well. There are lots of signs of age and use and some old splits in the top but nothing untoward and they are strong and sturdy. They have been cleaned and gently polished and are ready for use. The best description comes from the photos so please look at them all carefully and if you have any questions just ask.
