Solid wood chest. Excellent sturdy condition. It is quite heavy. 40 inches long, 20.5 inches wide and 18.5 inches tall. No hinges/shocks that hold it open on the sides. It has never had any since I have had it. There is hinges on the back that allow it to open and close but unless it is held open, it will come crashing down. You could easily buy the hardware to rectify this.
