19th Century German Cast Iron Strong Box or Ammunition Chest on Wheels

A rare amazing petite very heavy (25 kilos) German war or treasure chest from the first half of the 19th century. 
Rectangular strongbox of sheet iron with cast and wrought iron reinforced edges and hinges, without lock.

This antique strong box is clearly used, weathered and sturdy, this makes it quite exquisite indeed.
 I cannot find a makers marks on this little beauty accept voor the B.N.B and number 13 in white paint on it (no idea what this means). 

This chest likely was used to hold ammunition, currency or valuables.
It is in beautiful, original, unrestored condition with a grand patina.
