Antique Chest with painting inside
I have this antique trunk and I am seeking as much information as possible about it. How old? What country? Profile of someone who would have owned this type of trunk? etc..
I think it is made from balsam (or similar type) of wood because it is extremely light.
The hinges and rivets look hand hammered.
Inside, it is lined with paper and has a picture in the middle of the lid.
Please follow the links to see some pictures of it:
