I know the ones you mean, I think, the decorated stuff, right? We have some of those too (great-great grandpa was a sea captain who had a route to China). But this is actually a completely plain storage chest, foot locker style, out of some beautiful wood, lined with cedar, and with brass reinforcements and closing mechanism. Her initials are engraved on a brass plate on the lid.

ETA: Found a pic, all the way to the left in the back of the room behind the office chair, there is a plain wooden chest with some framed pics on it. The pic is from the NYT, but the chest is almost identical to g-grandma's.

I don't care for many of the patterns but some of them are very nice.

There are some nice patterns but for the majority, I am not into them either. I have 2 change purses and they are cute but I don't have any handbags and probably would never buy one.
