Warehousemen's F S  Charter Chest

Glasgow Warehousemen's Friendly Society charter chest.

The society was established in 1824. Charter chests were used to contain records and other documents relating to the society. They often had three locks as a security measure, ensuring that all three office bearers had to be present before the chest could be opened.
