All of our vintage antique wooden chests, trunks and blanket boxes are old, often over 100 years old and will therefore show signs of use which we feel add to the character and appeal of the item. They will have knocks and scrapes consistent with age, many of our chests and trunks have sailed the seas and travelled to far continents carrying precious family possessions. We hope this unique chest or trunk will bring you pleasure and will be a centre piece for your home.
