This was made for chums.  They wanted a traditional looking chest for storage.  Options were for a domed lid, flat or scalloped.  Traditionally the domed lid seaman’s chest was preferable as it did shed water well whereas flat or scalloped lids could channel the water into the inside.  Of course if you keep a chest indoors water ingress is not an issue and it isn’t too comfortable to sit on – but it does look good!
