This old chest belonged to my grandfather's moving and storage company in Highland Park, Il. I was told that they used these before the advent of cardboard boxes for packing china and like items. I tried searching for the manufacturer out of Indiana, but to no avail. I was wondering if you could tell me approximately how old it was and what its' worth might be. The only thing that I can see missing is the rope handles on the sides that were used to lift the chest.
