This would be carried as a top load on a Aparajo Pack saddle. It holds two lanterns and has provisions on the back to carry a canvas bucket. This chest was painstakingly restored over the last 3 weeks from a dried out, dirty, and somewhat damaged wooden box to this very displayable artifact. Hope you enjoy it.

Yet another item I had no idea existed until now. Beautiful restoration. Those are great photos of the whole rig.

I agree with Mike.  The box must be 50 times heavier than the lanterns.
