1940's/50's Hope Chest
Hello :) I recently brought over my grandmothers Hope Chest into our home. I went in it several times - open/closed - no problems. Then we moved the chest upstairs and all of a sudden it doesn't open. BLAST! I have no idea what happend, but of course we do not have a key. I thought it was a wafer lock, but I don't think so anymore. I am now thinking tubular strictly by the name...lol There is one circlular piece and then a smaller circular piece in the middle of that which has the key hole. I have stuck in metal nail files, but I just have no idea what to do from there. Any suggestions? I would really like to get this open. Thanks so much for any help you can offer. I can post pictures, if it will help.
