I came across this old tool chest on an auction site and thought I would share. It reminds me of a mini-Studley chest. I would imagine the original owner was a very talented individual.

Good score, that chest surely has some history behind it. Were they able to tell you anything of its pedigree? Nice brass hardware and a cool assortment of tools.

Unlike the Studley, THIS one appears to have been heavily used, which to me, makes it even more interesting!

Man would I love to own that. It is a fabulous conversation piece.

I would love to know what the list of tools that were in the case were.

I wonder what this fellows profession was?
