Antique wooden treasure chest from McGraw Wood Company. There is a handwritten note on the bottom - "Love to Marian from William Christmas 1936".
At some point, someone decorated it to look like it belonged to Captain William Kidd, the pirate. The paint and style appears to be older, I don't know if it happened in 1936 or later than that but it is not newly painted. I'm not sure if the paint could be removed without damaging the box. I think it is possible but not guaranteed.The interior is pink material, it smells musty and shows some wear. This could easily be redone.
It measures 7" tall, 10 1/4" across and 7 1/4 deep. This is a very high quality box with nice metal accents!
