Antique carpenters tool chest in great condition. A quality piece as evidenced by the beveled top edge of the bottom trim, brass corners top and bottom with the top corners secured with brass screws and the bottom corners with brass brads, and a lock with brass bezel that took a skeleton key (sorry, no key!). Very ornate cast iron side handles which suggest it’s from the Victorian period, so likely no younger than the turn of the century. Original brown paint with uniform crazing that attests to its age. Interior top tool tray slides easily side to side but is not removable as built. The only thing not original is the chain that supports the lid when open – when we bought it only the two eye hooks were there so I installed the chain to prevent the lid from falling backwards and stressing the hinges. Nice smaller size for room display and/or a multitude of practical decorating uses – by itself, displaying antique tools, holding potted plants, flowers, other antiques, knick knacks, etc. Measures 28” wide x 12” deep x 12” high with lid closed and 22.5” high with lid open. The last photo shows the chest next to a standard Victorian piano stool to help illustrate size/scale.
