Here’s a coffee table with a difference!
Fantastic patina to the wooden finish.
Hinged lid, hasp fasteners
Lined with galvanised steel.
Very solid construction. The original lettering from the top has worn away but the words Portugal can faintly be seen.
We have two of these cases. On the other one, the words DIRECCAO DA ARMA DE AERONAUTICA, LISBON, PORTUGAL can clearly be seen. Translated this reads Aviation weaponary.
This explains the galvanised steel lining which would have protected explosives etc,
This large wooden crate has so much character and would appeal to anyone with an interest in aerospace, the military or with Portugese connections.
Size 115 x 60 x 41cm
Very heavy item due to size and steel lining.
