Look at what I found on the Online Galleries website!
A very strong oak chest, reinforced with brass corner and side braces. With brass carrying handles. The brass work is more thoughtfully and decoratively shaped than normally found on such pieces, even down to the hand-made brass screws.
The oak used was obviously carefully chosen, showing a glorious rich warm mellow colour, with lovely mudullary ray patterns running primarily vertically and creating beautiful balance with the underlying firm horizontal grain. Good patina.
Interior is lined in calf skin and has side dividers to create space for seven drawings or paintings to be stored and transported safely.
Sir Edwin Landseer (1802-1873) was a respected and popular artist in Victorian times, well-know for his paintings of animals, particularly horses, dogs and stags. Queen Victoria commissioned paintings from him, and his works are on display at the Victoria and Albert Museum, the Tate Gallery, and the Wallace Collection.
His most famous work is the sculpture of four bronze lions at the base of Nelson's Column in Trafalgar Square.
