The Pirate's Lair Exclusive!
We all romanticize about the mystique of these antique trunks. The possible owners and travels that each steamer trunk has taken, along with the high level of detailed craftsmanship in the original production of each and every steamer trunk with that individualized character giving both intrinsic and non-intrinsic value.
 
However the truth of the matter is that the majority of these trunks were made towards the middle to end of the 19th century just at the dawning of the industrial revolution here in America when there were no child labor laws or protections. This rare photo clearly illustrates at least 3 generations of owners and workers, ages appearing to range from pre-teen/adolescent, teens/early adult, through middle to old age!
It was a common practice that loyal and productive craftsmen would be allowed to bring their children to work with them to learn a craft, so many of the children in this photograph were more than likely sons of the men shown.
 
Note the adolescent factory workers on top row! Note that there are no women in the photo! This is due to the fact that at that time "proper" women did not work outside of the home, certainly not in a factory. Everybody appears to look pretty stern, having on their arms crossed and "work" faces put on.

These are truly a vintage china flat top sea chest or silverware chest as well as an antique sea chest. A captains sea chest and are also great for a waterfront home as a nautical pirates treasure chests, pirate chests or china chests. Any nautical chests at The Pirates Lair, either a flatop treasure chest or a dome top pirate chest, are authentic vintage 100 to 150 year old flat top sea chests.

While you may see sea chests like this in the movie "Master and Commander", or as a pirates treasure chests in "The Pirates of the Caribbean", they are not movie props but the real thing!
All of the offered captains sea chests and pirate treasure chests could be plucked right out of the move set of Master and Commander, but the pirate chests offered by The Pirates Lair are authentic!
A treasure chests could also be used as an antique hope chest regular old sea chest, a nautical sea chests or nautical chests. They com as flat top chests or Domed Chests.
If you ever want some authentic captains sea chests or a pirate treasure chest, (even pirate chests and pirate treasure chests), The Pirates Lair is the place to come!
Could also be used as an antique hope chest with some cedar wood, or just an authentic sea chest would do. But if it is a captain's sea chest or an original one-of-a-kind nautical sea chests then this is it.
All nautical chests are either flat top chests, dome top chests and could come right out of the movie pirates of the caribbean, but this is no reproduction or movie prop, these sea chests are the real deal and affordably priced!
