Small collectors chest with coins and shells
 
 
DescriptionSmall collectors chest in (painted) pine with six drawers. This came straight from a house that was built in the early 1930s and has been in the same family ever since. Each drawer has still has its contents assembled by the youngsters during the mid '30s and early years of the war. Contents almost wholly comprise of shells (these likely brought back from foreign parts by their father who was a seafarer) and coins. Coins are various nationalities but largely British (e.g. there is a 'run' of over 20 rather worn Victorian pennies) and date from the 1870s up until the early 1940s. Each drawer has a glass cover in rebate (one cracked). Please note that due to its charm we have left this entirely as found and the pine chest could of course be stripped and red handles replaced with dinkie brass knobs - also contents are undisturbed.
