I have found this chest in my grandads attic after he has sadly died. Can anyone tell me what it is and what period?? Any info would be great and maybe what it is worth ( if anything lol).

Thank you.

Ooh, very nice! I've seen similar chests and they ended up being 19th century Scottish. This one is interesting though, because it is inset with Jasperware cabochons. If they are made by Wedgwood, that points to England. With the exception of some wear to the brass strapping, looks to be in pretty nice condition. What does the inside look like? 

I have also found a book/folder that I will post in discussion again lol you may like it!!!

Looks like he may have tinkered a bit as it has compartments for paper work/filing which I don't think were there originally. Hard to explain lol

This is an antique stationery box with lock for keepsakes...such as a family Bible?  Hence the matching book binding?  There are also dividers within, like your grandfather's has.

Nice, so maybe he didn't tinker after all l
Pretty sure the plaques are wedgwood on mine??

Looks like an antique jewelry box to keep the jewelries safe in ancient times. I too had one that looks like this. 
I hope you will like it.

That is stunning!!

Thanks for the appreciation Mark.
