Up for sale is for a very rare and old (early 19th century or earlier) miniature coffer chest hand-painted with portraits of saints or some type of religious icons. The seller indicated it has been passed down in an Irish family and had belonged to a Catholic priest but I don't know if that is an accurate history. The box measures about 11 inches long, 7 inches tall to its peak and about 5 inches deep. It is heavy and has old iron hardware. The hasp is missing but the rest of the original hardware is there.Three of the old nail on the hinges were replaced with screws at some point.
A fantastic and rare find!
