Favourite Item
English Oak carved Chest, circa 1640 of delightful proportions and with a superbly carved front. The three panelled top is attached to the back rail by its original pin hinges. The front top rail has a running lunette design with attractive punched decoration between each semi-circle. The stiles are heavily carved with repeating wavy lines which create an optical effect which makes the surface appear to undulate. The three panels are cross-hatched to create lozenges with Maltese crosses inside them. The hatching of the outer panels has single reeding, whilst the central moulding of the central panel has triple reeding. The overall effect is to create a design of almost perfect unity.
