Antique Early 18th Century Warm Brown Paneled and Carved Oak Chest or Coffer



A beautiful antique eight-panel English coffer or trunk, dating to the William III period in the early 1700s. The piece has recessed panels with molded edges around them. The piece is decorated with geometrical carvings on its front. The coffer rests on a convex-concave sawm plinth. The interior has a candle box, a compartment closed by a lid that can also be used to hold the lid of the coffer in an upright position. The chest has the original lock, key, and hinges. It was made in the finest quality oak and it has a beautiful warm brown color with a deep gloss. The coffer has built up a great patina over the many years.
