The interior is in good clean condition. The chest is adorned with pierced metal sheets throughout, creating a series of geometric and Moorish inspired patterns. Exquisitely detailed with magnificent craftsmanship. The chest is fitted with several carrying handles, all standing on bracket feet. Originally used for travels and often for the export of goods.
