Very rare sea chest dated 1762. It was obtained from a wealthy local family who has owned it since the family brought it over from England in the early 19th century. It's in remarkable shape with only minor, expected wear. Wonderful patina. Original list of items it contained is still present. It is quite large and impressive, measuring 25 X 30 3/4 X 47 inches (including hardware, such as the side handles and brass front knob).
