With a triple-panelled hinged lid. The front with three panels, each carved with a lunette-filled arcade. The outer panels also centred by the carved date ‘16’ ‘68’ respectively. The top rail carved with flower-filled roundels, the muntin rails with simpler, yet conforming roundel decoration, the stiles with gauge-carved and zig-zag punched-decoration, lidded interior till.
A paper trade receipt, dated September 25, 1913, from John Neal, Wrexham, to a Mr Bradbury, pasted to the underside of the lid reads: ‘Dear Sir, Your letter to hand today re Oak Chest, there is no worm in it, which makes the same valuable considering the age. It was bought from an old Lady aged over eighty at a village called Flelin Pulleston (sic) about 1½ miles from here, I have been to see her to day, but find that she has left this district so I cannot give any history concerning it, only when I bought it she said it had never been out of the one family, and debt was the only course of selling. Yours truly John Neal.’ In 1913, Felin Puleston was a small estate village owned by the Yorkes of Erddig Hall, Wrexham.
