    Wonderful, English, Oak, Six Plank Chest

     
    Lovely patina, knolling design on the edges and scratch carving.
     
    Nice, tall, legs, which haven't been too cut down.
     
    The overall condition is good. The hinges are sound, the top is sound and unsplit and the legs are good. There is some old woodworn, however, my husband tells me it is not live - there's no powder coming from the holes, there are scratches and bumps and some old damage to one of the legs (see photo) but this is all part and parcel of the coffer's considerable age. Also, I'm not sure, but I think that the hinges may be 18th century, however, the DH reckons not and he's more of an expert than I am.
     
    It measures 114cmx40cm(depth)x54cm

    The Long Weekend

    When we buy our antiques, we imagine how they could be used in a modern family home. We believe passionately that, if treated with respect, all our antiques can be used and appreciated on a daily basis. This is because English antiques have been beautifully made out of superior quality materieals by master craftsmen. Ultimately, William Morris was right, "have nothing in your home that you do not know to be usefful, or believe to be beautiful." This si a sentiment which can apply to any home, however modest. It is our pleasure to provide you with something unique, beautiful and practical.
