I have an antique sea chest I've owned for 35 years, it's large with a lot of decorative metal work. How would I find out more about it and its value?

Hello

Is this marked in any way to suggest maker?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Not that I can see. I can get much more detailed photos, it has a side container inside, metal lifting handles and intricate hinges that look like they're hand made. Would additional photos help? I'm just trying to get an idea where it was made and how old it is. Others I've seen online are somewhat similar but nothing comes very close to matching it.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Tonight when I get home I can get the dimensions and more photos and I'll look closer for any kind of makers mark
