    Default Help to open unknown chest

    Hi all, just wondering if anyone can identify the make of this box.
    We need to open it and fit a key.
    If you know what make it is can you provide a drill point or info
    on how to pick it open, # of levers, etc?
    The cover that slides over the keyhole is missing...only
    the fixed part of it is still there...shown unscrewed from it's location.
    There's a bit of gold paint coming through the brown on the door
    but no other indication of a makers name or symbol.
    I've included a few pics showing the few unique features of it.
    the dimensions are 28" going parallel with the hinges and 22" both others
    ways.

    Thanks for any help you may provide.

    Tom

    There were boxes like that made by lots of manufacturers. I doubt if it will be possible to identify it simply from external photographs.

    The locks are relatively unsophisticated. A good locksmith should be able to pick it open for you and make a new key.

    I would feel uncomfortable discussing drilling points on a public forum.
