It is clear that this carpenter was bragging. It is tin lined and has a tin top.
The top is decorated with a beautiful piece of quarter sawn oak. This piece is beveled and has a carved edge. The sides of the chest have boxed angled paneled wood (probably pine). Again some carved wood focuses attention to this decoration. Decorative tacks or nails are also used.
Was restored many years ago. Has been used as a coffee table since.
This is an original piece not a later reproduction. Overall an extremely positive and pleasant decorative item.
It was restored many years ago in a way that left much of the old characteristic wear use some staining and nail holes. Currently shows the patina which comes from light wear. The wear is normal and appropriate to an item of this age. There are reflections in the photographs.
