The Chinese characters inside might give a clue of it's original owner or China origin?
It is in very good condition considering its history in China and at sea.. There are a few small dings on the corners, a tiny one on the top, and some nicks on an inside edge.
brass carrying handles, three brass hinges and a brass lock with part missing.
The lacquer is rich deep dark brownish red with depth--smooth.
A Treasure! (chest)
