Description

A very nice old pine dowry chest, found in beautifully worn original finish, Northern Europe, dated 1841. An unusual slim version, standing on tapered feet.
Built in customary way, dove tailed and wooden pegged, a heavily moulded top with iron strap hinges, a partition inside, a very strong box indeed.
The front panel dispalys a brass pressed escutcheon, a sign of its Scandinavian origin, the initials I.C.S. and the date of 1841, handwritten in black paint...original!!
The escutcheon hides the large keyhole for a very strong lock, the key works it effortlessly.. it is a snapper...
Oozing period charm, this chest has seen a few marriages, but has never been refurbished, showing time related knocks, dents, some wood worm scattered, but historic for sure.
The inside of the chest is very clean, no stains or smells.
A good period box, a decorative and useful pine trunk or storage box, a focal point in any space.
