This country period oak antique coffer dates from the 17th century and is a typical example of a primitive six plank design piece. It has a hinged lid with a moulded edge, which when opened reveals a large storage space with separated candle box. The beauty of this piece is in its simplicity, with a large locking plate, shaped sides and clout nail construction, it oozes a sense of history. Originally it would have had several uses; somewhere to sit, a key place to store things and also a means to transport belongings whilst travelling. Today it is a practical, decorative piece of antiquity with a real sense of heritage. This antique coffer is a medium dark shade of oak with a striking grain, good patina, is in very good condition and has been beautifully cleaned using a traditional form of wax finishing.
