Sometimes I find things that make me smile. Sometimes I find things that make me money. Sometimes making money makes me smile. Sometimes I find things that I couldn't bear to put up on the auction block. This is one of those things. I mean who in their right mind would sell a treasure chest?!
This chest was made with an old military foot locker. It is all hand painted and appears to be really old. It's hard to see in the picture but the lettering on the front was once covered with a reflective grit.
It looks like the mouth was cut to allow tickets to be pulled through or put in. This makes me believe that this chest was used at a carnival or fair. Who nows?
