This is a really good solid antique Victorian chest. It is handmade and has wonderful character and is very solid. There are strong old metal lifting handles to each end and it is waxed to a nice finish and colour. The chest has good strong hinges and the corner edges have been iron bound.
There is a lovely brass key hole cover. There is also trim to the top and bottom of the chest.
It is clean inside and the base is sound but there are gaps between the boards. The lid has been braced and there is a material stay to stop the lid from falling backwards. This chest could be used as a blanket box at the end of a bed, or a good size coffee table as it's a useful size for storing books, toys or blankets, shoes, coats or maybe even used as a window seat. The chest does have signs of use and wear but it is in good condition. It has a slightly darker bit to the front and back of the chest which is part of the natural wood.
The lid has a gap between the boards where the planks are inter locked but the lid has been braced. All in all a nice box.
Measurements at the largest points. Please check the measurements to see if it fits in your intended space. Collection from near Bedale only, North Yorkshire (10 mins from the A1). I normally courier our chests and trunks, however this weighs over 30kg and is a bulky heavy item!
