Stunning piece thats just a great find. I have no history on this piece and i have done no restoration. Also on this piece there are hand written signatures on the front on names on ports or people that used the chest.
I counted 5 but there very faded and impossible to tell by me what they say. As you can also tell it looks like they used tar to help preserve the chest. Look over all the pictures the measurements are not exact just rounded up to nearest inch. The iron bands also go all the way around the chest even the bottom and the bottom of the chest is oddly not tarred. Please look over all the pictures as I try and describe any flaws found but may miss some and the pictures are part of the description.
