Seller: nonniemin (394) 100%, Location: Coventry, Ships to: Free Local Pickup, Item: 142178825793 Charles II Large oak coffer / chest Purchased many years ago for almost 3 times the listing price. The purchase receipt dates it at c1680 and describes the chest as "a good 17th oak coffer c1680s" This beautiful dark oak chest has a wonderful colour and a deep lustre gained from hundreds of years of being lovingly polished. There is an old repair on the top of the chest, see photo. There are also two old iron braces on the back of the chest at the top facing the wall. I dont know whether these are original or whether they indicate a later repair. Despite this being a very heavyweight chest and lid, when you open the chest, the lid will stands steady and upright, without support. This is very convenient and makes the chest more manageable. The chest measures: Length: 3ft 7.5inHeight: 2ft 6inDepth: 1ft 9inLid is solid oak and circa 1.5in thickFeet are 5in high It is a really lovely, useful item. This is a very reluctant sale. The coffer was inherited but unfortunately our home is just not big enough. Product Type: Chests, Original/Reproduction: Original, Age: c1680, Material: Oak
