17th Century Walnut Chest

  • H: 86 cm (33 7/8")
  • W: 180 cm (70 7/8")
  • D: 72 cm (28 3/8")

French 17th Century solid walnut coffer/chest.

Dating from circa 1620, this chest was originally in a French Château. 

With a lovely patina to the aged walnut and original iron hardware, including hand-forged handles and hinges as well as a delightful safe and key inside. 

This chest has been beautifully constructed, with a huge piece of single plank walnut to the front.

The piece perfectly represents furniture in the time of Louis XIII, where economic circumstances meant that pieces were generally massive and restrained in terms of ornamentation. 

Coffers and chests such as this one were used for storing valuables, clothes or other possessions. Today, this chest would look wonderful at the end of a bed or even as a coffee table.
