I wanted to get some more background on my great grandmothers chest that I've recently inherited. From what I could find (thanks to mostly this community) is that the latches seem to be from Star Lock Works in PA. It seems to have oak slats with embossed tin. Sits on 4 tiny roller wheels. The story was always that she brought it over with her from Europe in the late 1800's. Is there anyone here that could give me a better idea as to who made it? Is it worth restoring because I have the leather handles that were removed (see photo). No tray sadly. Love this piece. Is it better original with just some basic cleaning or worth restoring. What is it worth as it sits does anyone have any idea? Thanks.
