Description

A quite elegant country pine chest, found in this style mostly in Scandinavia and northern Germany.
Usually found decorated as dowry chests. This one has been stripped to the beautiful mellow aged pine, the date, 1896 was successfully preserved with a little trick of the trade!
The chest is definitely older, the date referes to the last recorded marriage.
Inside the chest has a candle box with lid and original hand forged iron strap hinges.
Plenty of tactile old pine, dove tail construction, especially nice moulded lid edge with bread boarded ends, worn and scuffed, some historic woodworm holes, minimal, treated as always.
Original pewter escutcheon, original lock and key.
With a rather large top and good storage space this chest would be suitable as a coffee table or as intended to store all matter of things.
A perfect piece for hall, landing, bedroom or usable as a window seat and coffee table.
Dimensions:
1180mm wide
590mm deep
