This was left in my garage when I moved into my house (along with a trunk that I also posted) and I was wondering if it is something that is homemade or is actually an antique. I could not find any labels or markings on it at all. I did notice on the inside of the top that it is stained and looks like it has some kind of clearcoat on it. The rest of it is pretty rough. It has been wet and the outside really needs to be re-finished. I think it would make a nice blanket chest. I was thinking I could line it with cedar. It also has a storage compartment at the bottom with a lid, not a drawer. If anyone knows anything about it I would appreciate any information on it. I plan on re-finishing it and giving it to my daughter. I think it could turn out nice. Thanks for any help.
