This Victorian c 1837 – 1901 Metal Bound Oak Plate Chest with Domed Lid has iron hinges and sturdy carry handles, two at either sides.
The lid has security bolts set within it to firmly hold in place, thought to be used to transport valuable items. With two iron flaps with hefty key holes and a much smaller keyhole in the centre. Although without keys this does not detract from the chest being used, it would look quite the part in a period drama.
This domed chest is sturdy enough and of solid construction to be used as an indoor log store, may be for boots and shoes. Perhaps storing cushions for garden chairs.
The dimensions are 590h x 820w x 570d mm
Although the lid is domed it has enough expanse to place a tray in the centre, for afternoon tea or you’re before dinner drinks. All in all, a fab statement piece, a piece of history.
