My husband bought this at a garage sale for $5 nearly 20 years ago and we are now getting around to making it into a piece of furniture for our home. It has what we believe to be a Star lock (with the most recent patent date being Feb 70) and is covered in zinc with a pattern made with nails. The lithograph was pretty moldy, but when we wiped it off it was still fairly clear. The top is slightly curved from front to back. We have no idea how old it is (though from the lock the earliest it could be made is 1870) or who made it and I haven't seen anything like it anywhere on the internet. Anyone have any ideas?
