Fantastic 18th Century Iron Bound Oak Treasure Chest – Sea Chest

Fantastic 18 th Century Iron Bound Oak TreasureChest – Sea Chest

Sadly we have to let this wonderful chest go as we no longerhave the room for it.

It is probably Spanish in origin and dates back to the late 18 th or early 19 th century. It is made from solid Oak and has beautifully cast metal strapping all over with a semi domed top. A very high quality piece of its time and may have been a ships chest.

Inside it retains the original candle box and has some lovely hinges as can be seen from the photos. There are two beautifully cast carrying handles on either side of the chest.

The original lock has long gone but has been replaced by a 19 th century hasp so could easily be locked with a padlock if needed!

The box measures:

W: 39”, D22”, H19” (Nice compact dimensions)

This would make a wonderful toy box as it looks very much like a treasure chest!
