Circa 1840, unusual teak kist/trunk. The large rectangular top has the two bolts of the locking device protruding through, and opens to reveal an open interior with a small candlebox. The body of the kist has visible dovetails on the corners and a steel escutcheon with the original key, and cast iron lifting handles on both sides. At the bottom is an ogee moulding and a flat apron. Would make a good coffee table or storage trunk.
