Old Hardwood 3 Draw Chest/Coffer. Pre WW2




Lovely hardwood chest with lift up lid and candle box.

Unusual and rather unique are the 3 draws at the bottom.

This is probably from India or that region, it was originally coppered and studded but it has now worn and aged which gives it that wonderful look of age and character.

This chest has lived! I found several Indian Empire coins from the 1930s/40s hidden in a secret compartment, someone's emergency travel money perhaps?

This would maybe give a clue to its age.

A very useable item as a coffee table or at the bottom of the bed.
Very heavy.
