A beautifully and heavily carved box adorned with human forms such as a pagan mooning man and also green man to the sides. Roses to the front and delicate geometric Tulip design to the sloping top. To the interior you will find five drawers, and to the bottom of the piece is a larger carved hidden pull- out drawer (that opens when a wooden peg inside is flicked) which conceals a further four drawers behind. There is yet another hidden compartment to the right hand side of the box- accessed from the front by pulling out. Condition is excellent, box bears some wear and tear consummate to its history, age and use, but has been well looked after and probably kept in the same place for many, many years. Main brass lock is not original and has been added later! The mooning man escutcheon to the front over the lock has benefited to some minor restoration . Pine interior with handmade nails. Some renovation to one of the draws underneath. If you would like further more detailed images please email us- unfortunately we can only show 12 images here.
