Description

Rustic and decorated pine boxes are rarely found in undisturbed and original condition which makes this box a pleasing find.
Originating from the Continent, most likely northern parts, ie German or Danish and decorated for the celebration of a marriage, hence called dowry chests.
This floral style of decoration can be found all over Europe from Scandinavia to Hungary, typically garden designs, as in this case, tied bunches of flowers in "Rose Maling" style. The sides are painted and the interior of the trunk is clean scrubbed pine.
The condition of the box is excellent, there are signs of slight wear, mainly on the top, where the painted finish has faded nicely as one would expect. It has also shrunk a little, showing the joints in the timber.
The trunk has original hinges.
Dimensions:
810mm wide
480mm deep
435mm high
