I have this beautiful very old box and I’m not sure who made it or where it originated.

    I bought this box at a thrift store. I really would love to know more about it. I have no clue other than it is real wood and very old. If someone could please help me find something on this beauty it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance

      Hi Cathyt3, and welcome to CW! :^D Your Treasure Chest is a decorative piece, made to look old, or older than it is, here's a similar style one that was posted on CW, and I had posted one earlier that had the information about it:

      https://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/247885-vintage-vintage-old-brass-ornamental-des

      I commented on this linked post, and more links to similar Chests are on it. I don't know the size of your chest, but by the look of the hasp, and hinges it's not very large, and might have been bought for Halloween, or at a Pirate Festival, as a Jewelry Box. I don't know where they're made, maybe India, or Pakistan, but just a guess!
      It's nice looking, and great as a Treasure Chest for Children, because they're light weight. Nice Find, thanks for showing! Stay Safe, and Wear a Mask! :^)
