    Our Stock # 18.8697

    This is a large antique silver chest. An English, oak and cast iron bound campaign trunk, dating to the mid Victorian period, circa 1850. 

    Thomas de Grey, the second Earl de Grey (1781 - 1859) was a Tory politician in 19th century Britain. His daughter Ann de Grey married George Cowper (the 6th Earl Cowper) whose son Henry Cowper (1836 - 1887) entered parliament for the Liberal party. Not to be confused with the Earl Grey title of nobility, the 2nd Earl Grey - Charles - was a Whig prime minister during the reign of William IV (in office 1830-1834).

    • Stout and bold, a superior antique chest with a fascinating history
    • Displays a desirable aged patina and in good order
    • Select oak stocks show fine grain interest and deep caramel hues
    • Cast iron strapping shows a delightfully weathered appearance
    • The deep lid held closed by long strap clasps and secured by an inset lock – key present
    • Upon opening to the clean interior, the lid held open by an internal folding rest
    • Engraved plaque to the front reads 'Earl de Grey, No.10'
    • Dressed with pairs of cast iron drop handles to either end

    This is a dashing antique silver chest, with an apparent political provenance and an inviting aged appearance. Of excellent size and desirable construction, ideal for the foot of the bed or as a distinctive coffee table. Solid joints and construction, delivered waxed, polished and ready for the home.
