CHEST IN MASSIVE OAKThis 18th century chest belonged to a manor or even a palace somewhere in Denmark.During the second half of the 18th century quite a few manors in Denmark became unprofitable and thus the tenant farmers got the chance to take over the manor of their landlord. These farmers went from being poor and in essence "economic serfs" to owning their own land. More than a 100 manors were closed down during the first two decades of the 19th century and the values like furniture were sold off. This beautiful chest has belonged to the same family for generations, but as this large furniture doesn't really fit into modern houses in Denmark, the owner has desided to sell it entrusting this task to us. The 1 1/4 inch massive oak planks have withstood the test of time and are stunning with their cracks and patina. We find signs of age very attractive. It’s like History calling. This chest hasn't been restored, repaired or treated in any way.
