This large box is truly stunning, it is guaranteed. My research has confirmed it to have been made c1830's out of pine using a traditional through cut dovetail construction method.The timber that has been used for this box is Quebec yellow pine with beautiful figure, it also has its original ogee moulded plinth and round edged moulding to the top. The interior still has the original candle tray/box and lid to the inside. The inside of is lined in period news paper. This chest, amazing, it still has its original painted and stencilled finish which is a rich golden brown colour, scumbled to imitate the decorative grain of oak, this has worn through to the original wood and undercoat in places to created a totally unique original distressed look. We have then polished the original paintwork with bee's wax to a wonderful shine. It comes with the solid wrought iron penny round hinges and painted wrought iron side handles, both have originally been hand made. This chest is in fabulous condition, the interior is like all the boxes we sell, clean and tidy with some age related marks inside. This old chest still has the original lock and solid brass key escutcheon, but no key. A large solid chest that I'm sure could tell a story or two. The years of use have really added to this box's character, which have developed into a fabulous rich all over unique weathered look. It would be perfect to hold all manner of things and could even be a fantastic TV stand. The rest of the box has been fully restored and has been polished using traditional bees wax. This is a truly stunning and wonderful quality piece of furniture, a solid trunk full of character, "History" and charm in fantastic condition.
