    All Types Of Treasure Hunting



    I cannot seem to find anything that looks like this on the internet. Some distinguishable characteristics make me believe it's not a typical immigrant trunk:

    - The dome top only opens 1/2 way.
    - Imperial Eagle, Crowns, Flower painted on chest / trunk
    - Cask Iron round feet
    - Engravings on Iron
    - 2 places for padlocks, 1 skeleton key
    - Lock has a design that seems to be traced to medieval time.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!!!!
    Thank you!

    Welcome to Tnet from Toronto Chauncey!

    I have a feeling the black painted 'decorative' stencils were added at a later time.
    I've seen these types of chests before and I know they were designed to only open halfway for a specific reason.

    I think this chest is Middle Eastern in origin, possibly Syria, Kazakhstan or from Afghanistan.

    If you could show us a pic of the underside, I may be able to give you a date range of manufacture.
    From what I can see I'm thinking 18thc.
