We have a captian's chest that was owned by Captain E C Lea. At least that is what the brass engraved name plate on the top of the chest says.
It's been hanging around our family's home for as long as we can remember. A friend who knows wood says it's made from some kind of fruit wood, cedar lines. It is 36 inches across, 19 inches deep by 17 inches high. There are no dove tail fittings. Flat cut wood held together by brass corners Has a lock but no key. Any help is appreciated especially if you know how to trace the name Capt E.C. Lea
