I bought this chest at auction where it was listed as a seaman's Chest/trunk. Since then, some seem to think its an early immigrants trunk originating in the British Isles...what are your opinions.
The chest is of oak and what I believe to be walnut trim. It measures 36" wide 19 1/2" deep and 21 inches tall. It is carved as you can see with the initials JAH SD Ano 1710...the hardware is hand forged.
