Visual Description : This chest is simple in construction and design. All surfaces are plain. Only the edges have a design that are created by pressure to make deep dents in the wood. The legs of the chest are made from a continuous piece of wood used in the sides. There are metal pieces that stick out of the surface of the lid. There are two metal hinges on the backside, in order for the lid to open. The chest appears to be shaped oddly as there has been considerable damage to this item. Please see condition report.
