Large elm box made in France in the early 1800’s.
It has a wonderful old village smithied lock on the front and a candle box inside. It has a brown varnish or paint finish, probably original.
There are some initials in the front, carved in dot form. The plinth and feet have some hand carving, though somewhat worn with use and woodworm (all treated..). The lid has shrunk a bit over the years and sits on its trim, rather than fitting neatly over the box, but it’s not a huge issue.
