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?
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.
Thanks for the appreciation Mark.
