This is a fine quality antique English early 18th century Georgian oak joined twin panel coffer / blanket box, circa 1700 – 1720, with small proportions and a humble design, in excellent clean condition. Nominal old marks to the top and leading edges, but nothing significant considering the age of the item (see photos). Such old use marks are inevitable and perfectly acceptable due to its age and use it would have received. The interior is clean, dry, and usable. The coffer retains its original lid, floor, sides and back. The coffer iron strap hinges, which are in good working order are old replacements. The coffer also incorporates a working steel clasp and restored lock, with working key. The coffer is solid in joint; it does not wobble on the floor and is ready to use. Considering the age of this coffer, it is in good condition. It is rare to find a coffer of this period in such clean condition.
