Magnificent Vintage Octagonal wooden chest - highly unusual with inlay


A magnificent wooden octagonal box or chest with a gilt wood trim and crocodile skin style finish to the outside and inlaid sections to the top and sides. This chest measures 58cm wide, 46cm deep and 46cm high. It has a clasp that goes over the top of two pins that have holes in them to apply a padlock or similar.

Each side of the chest is fitted with an ornate brass handle. The chest does have some signs of wear with nicks to places on the edges and top and a few scuff marks which are commensurate with age. It is however, in good condition for its age and is a very unusual and distinctive piece.
