Sorry, this product is no longer available, please visit incollect for related products.

This silver chest was made in England in the mid-19th century, circa 1850, and is made of oak with exposed steel hinges and strapping. This trunk was created to hold a Mackay, Cunningham & Co silver collection and still bears their original label inside. The trunk has a triple lock that required two different keys, insuring the safety of the silver due to two people being needed to open the chest. The keys were usually supplied to the butler and steward of the house. Offered by David Skinner Antiques & Period Lighting
