    I need help in determining the details of this chest. I have a feeling this may be from Middle East. I am no expert with chest but this may also just be another standard made chest. Hope someone can help me.. the strangest design I was able to discover was the secret drawer, it took us years to know how to open it & we finally solved one of its mysteries yesterday. I hope the pictures will help. Thank you.

      Thanks!

      I just recently saw that this may be an indian dowry chest. The age though may be around 500-600 yrs old. I cant verify the source.
