I just picked this up today from an junk shop in the country , will have it delivered to me in about two weeks , I love it .
It is an old trunk ca 1700 , has only a small lid on top , big enough for a person to fit into, has secret doors on the front and side , locks with chain from outside and has two locks on the inside ? , Would love to know what this chest was for and why can it be locked from the inside, It is of good wood and hand made nails with metal on all corners .
Measures about 110 cm or43 inch high
140 cm or 55 inch wide
I think it was made Holland east indies ????
If anybody knows anything about this chest i would like to read about it .
Cheers to all _ Steve aka ksf7777
