Vintage 1950s Tea Chest Side Table / Box - Ceylon Tea
Once used for moving home and storage, now hardly seen, this is a gorgeous old tea chest with added heavy pine lid
I would suggest it dates to the 1950s, but cannot be sure.
Someone has carefully made a lid for it, with lovely hinges and a secure fitting, making it a more usable piece of actual furniture now
Handy as a side table, with extra storage inside?
The original metal lining has mostly gone, but the lovely typography on the outside remains, as does the paper serial number. I have simply given it an oil to bring out the colour more
Measures 51 x 53cm x 62.5cm high
