Seller: sladesantiques (2,846) 100%, Location: Banbury, Ships to: Free Local Pickup, Item: 132001415096 ANTIQUE GEORGIAN SOLID OAK COFFER / TRUNK / BLANKET BOX WITH LATER ALTERATION This lovely coffer dates originally from c.1720, but has had carving and alteration added over the years. Most of the alteration is old, probably Victorian, in date. The coffer has a planked top, and a heavily carved front and sides - we believe that the carving was added later, probably in the early Victorian times. It is supported on straight legs with carved shoulders at the front. The coffer has metal hinges, which are old, although we do not believe them to be original to the piece. The bits of newspaper covering the hinges are dated 1798 and 1799. The coffer retains a lock, but this is wobbly and we do not know whether it works or not - please note that no key is present. The coffer is constructed from solid oak. Condition: Overall this handsome piece is in usuable condition, but with some wear consistent with age and use. There is some overall scuffing and wear to the woodwork as might be expected, and the piece is overall faded. As is mentioned above the coffer has had significant alteration over the years - the carving has been added, the hinges have been replaced, and the front plank of the top is also a replacement. A piece of wood has been added to the underneath of the top to strengthen it. There are some areas of wood loss, and some signs of old woodworm - this is not active, but has been retreated as a precaution. The carved shoulder at the left-hand side of the front is a little loose, as is the lock. There is some wood shrinkage cracking to the planks of the base. The top has some scratching and heavy indentation. The approx. measurements are as follows: Overall - 76.5cm high, 139cm wide, 59cm deep (to maximums).
