this is a picture which is close to the one I have. I can get cleaner pictures of my actual box. I would also be looking for a buyer.

Hi,

The chest that you show is actually Indian circa 1890-1910 with very few exceptions chests with wheels are mostly Asian. These are selling for $600-800 at auction. Here is a link to one that is similar for sale in the UK http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Brown-brass-gold-antique-style-Indian-chest-on-wheels-blanket-box-storage-trunk-/221705960073

Thank you,

Wayne
