Large wooden chest, believed to be from the late 1800s. About 49" long, 23" wide and 26" tall. This solid wooden trunk looks like a monstrous, coffin-like treasure chest, with rounded top and sloping sides, reinforced with three iron straps across the top terminating in two loops and keyhole lock (with original key) in front, also iron-reinforced corners and seams, small handles on ends, the wood a very dark-stained pine with some separation but no big cracks, obviously well used in its time but fully functional and a wonderfully massive display. Note: The right side of this chest shows a hand-carved “M.K. Ohrenbach,” which probably represents the initials of the owner or maker plus the city in Germany where the owner lived or the chest was made.
