It still retains two wrought iron penny round hinges and solid brass key escutcheon.
It also comes with the original candle tray which incorporated two draw both with solid brass drop handle.

The years of use have just added to the look and feel of this wonderful chest which has polished to reveal the most amazing character and a fantastic shine. This chest is in fabulous condition, the interior is like all the boxes we sell clean and tidy with some age related marks. A trunk that I'm sure could tell a story or two, the years of use have really added to this box's character, which have developed into a fabulous rich all over worn and nutty colour. The rest of the box has been fully restored and has been polished using traditional bee's wax.
Both handles and hinges have been removed during the restoration process, polished and re-applied. This is a truly stunning and wonderful quality piece of furniture, a clean and solid trunk full of character, "History" and charm in fantastic condition.
