A handsome old storage chest with unlimited uses.
This old wooden chest would have been originally used as a merchant's chest in India. Street traders or vendors would use these old wooden boxes to keep their money, notes, receipts and other documents safe and secure as they traded in the busy markets.
This storage chest is made from solid teak, a fantastic durable tropical hardwood. No two storage chests sold at Scaramanga are ever the same, each old chest has unique qualities that make it completely different from the next.
Storage Chest size: W55cm x D35cm x H30cm.
Today these distinctive old chests will make beautiful jewellery or memory box that can sit on top of a dresser, side table or desk. We think this little storage chest would be a great gift to give someone special.
Upon opening this storage chest you'll see it's not just any old box, but it has numerous compartments in a tray that lifts out, making it an ideal storage box.
Why not consider an authentic traditional padlock to complete the look?
Like all our vintage furniture, this storage chest is not a reproduction, but it's a one-of-a-kind original piece that is roughly 80 years old. Again, it's made from teak, therefore it only has a few signs of age and use because teak is an incredibly hard-wearing wood that lasts for years. Bring this lovely old box into your home and watch it transform your space with its rustic characteristics and vintage appeal.
