Beautiful antique Nordic pine Swedish marriage chest or bride's box with initials, A B S, and dated 1836. It is hand made, with lovely hand forged iron mounts, hinges, what appears to be original paint, with the original lock and key. This is called a'snatch' box, as the hasp graps the lock and snatches and locks it when the box is closed. This superb box is a beauty and almost 200 years old! The ground color is a dark tavern green and there are hand painted tulips, daisies, and a heart painted on the lid.
We are having a difficult time finding these gorgeous boxes. Dimensions: 15"L x 14.25"W x 8.5H. Condition: Very good, normal age wear consistent with age and use. Some minor loss to base on one corner as shown in the photos.
