This is a good quality antique oak joined box, with small proportions, originating from the French Brittany area, circa 1950, in excellent original condition. The trunk is constructed with a two-plank top, with a joined section below. The original lid features a moulded edge and retains its original brass hinges. The interior is clean, dry and practical and usable. The interior also retains its original floorboards. The front of the coffer is decorated with two panels at the front, which boast circular sunburst-shaped carvings. Between the carved panels and at the front corners are vertical carved notches. Below the panels is a lovely shaped frieze. The sides of the coffer also feature inset panels. The coffer stands on its original length shaped front stiles (feet). The back of the coffer retains its original fielded panels along with the original floor. Overall, this coffer boasts a lovely golden brown oak colour and patination.
This item would look great in a variety of rooms from the hallway, to the living room or bedroom as an ottoman or blanket box at the foot of the bed.
This beautiful piece boasts a golden-brown oak colour. As it boasts the original wax polish, it has a fantastic colour and patination; this can only be achieved through age and years of care and cleaning it has received.
The trunk is in excellent original condition. The trunk has been professionally French polished in our workshop. There are nominal old marks to the top and leading edges, but nothing significant considering the age of the item. The interior is clean, dry, and usable. The bass hinges are in good working condition. The trunk retains its original lid, floor, legs, sides and back. The coffer is solid in joint; it does not wobble on the floor and is ready to use.
