    A lovely old box trunk
    I'm not sure what this box made or used for?? Maybe a foot locker for a Soldier? I'm not sure but it's a lovely looking thing and it's a great size. I keep all my goodies in it :)

      What a fantastic box! It looks British to me -- particularly the handles. It does have the look of a military campaign style of chest. I have one that is black of similar style that dates back to late 1770's. The handles suggest a later date, perhaps 1860's, but I really am guessing at this point -- the older they are the smaller they are. Can you see a nail head anywhere to help date it? Either way, it is a wonderful early chest. How did you come across it?

      That is kinda funny -- I forget that you were in England when I said it looks British. It is hard to discern the age from the picture -- if the corners are made from cast iron then for sure it is that old, if they are made out of stamped metal then a little bit of a later date. You have a great eye for these things... keep them coming!

      Thanks trunkman for your info,your Comments are really Interesting. The corners look like they are cast metal so that would made it a bit later.
