A simply stunning chest with a slide opening top.  It’s ancient timbers are worn smooth with time and have a beautiful sun bleached appearance. This is a unique piece.

Its large interior is clean and ready to use for storage of paperwork or linens.  This item would make superb coffee table.

This item is in original condition and is weathered and worn not refurbished and polished – please expect imperfections as seen in our additional photographs. A robust and heavy item of furniture which is solid and honest.
