c1800 Leather Clad Steel Bound Dome Top Sea Chest

£750.00




A very attractive old c1800 (or earlier) Sea Chest that looks as if it has just come out of a pirate story.
The chest is made of wood that has been clad in leather and strengthened with tinned steel straps. It has the traditional domed lid and is decorated with dome head pins. The chest may in fact be older than we think, given the design of metalwork.
Condition is very good for its age. The inside has been lined with wallpaper. The owner’s details have been painted over in black paint. The lock longer working.
