This chest is finished in a handsome cinnabar colored lacquer. Across the lid, it measures about 16 3/4” deep by 25” long by 13” high. It has dark metal corner reinforcements and hardware. The interior is unfinished wood. It’s old, and was already old when my Mom got it. She lived till over 100, so I’m uncertain about just how old it is.

This chest has seen plenty of wear over many years. It came from Asia, looks Japanese, but I’m not sure! Please check the pictures to see various cracks, chipped or peeling finish, small indents and scratches, etc. Note that some of the corners of the metal trim are bent, some slightly outwards. So unless you straighten the edges, you may not want to put this near little kids. Take a careful look at the photos. It’s a lovely old piece, and its age is part of its charm.

I'd like a simple in-person cash transaction please, so take a careful look at the photos, and see what you think. And thanks!
