This is an antique chest dating to the late 17th century.
Raised on the extended stiles, this chest is of panelled construction held within robust 40mm thick, oak stock displaying carved detail to the front; the four panels featuring stylised flora in geometric mounts with Celtic overtones. The stiles repeating the theme beneath fluted detailing.
