Very Old Wooden Chest Box Tartan Ware

This auction is for a very old wooden chest box with a hinged lid and latch. It is covered in tartan paper, and has metal pieces on the sides and top. This box contained numerous tartanware items that we have sold on Ebay. It came from an estate lot of a lady that collected these items. Inside I have left 3 pages of an newspaper from 1977 featuring many of the tartanware items that she bought at an auction.

The box measures approximately 12" long, 7" wide or deep, and 7" high. It is banged up, and the paper is coming off in many spots. The latch is bent, and the wood slats on the top and front are pretty dinged up.

Please Note: We charge a $4.50 handling fee for this item plus actual shipping costs. We charge this handling fee to offset our shipping personnel, labor and shipping and packing materials which get quite costly. We recommend insurance for most items, although we very carefully wrap and pack each item. When you calculate your postage on Ebay, I have included the handling fee in the price, so it will come up to be the price you pay. Also, when you email for a quote, I will include handling in the shipping quote. We do not insure items unless insurance has been purchased. We will not be responsible for items damaged or lost in transit. Thank you, Happy Bidding
