Seller: passion8drak (883) 96.3%, Location: London, Ships to: Free Local Pickup, Item: 254397260326 This is a very beautiful and unusual Victorian LARGE pine blanket box that I have owned for many years. It is in beautiful condition, with a few dings and chips as you might expect of something this old, but it is absolutely solid and sturdy, it has a lovely deep bees wax polished finish. It is a very strong sturdy beautifully made box that requires nothing doing to it at all, you can sit or stand on it with no worries at all. I often do to reach a book from the top shelf and I am man weighing 100kg. though not with shoes on as I would not like to mark the beautiful lid which I have polished over the years with beeswax building up a truly beautiful soft shine. It is unusual because each side, the lid, the long sides and the ends (not including the base) are all each made from a single huge plank, so each must have been cut from an enormous tree! Usually the sides and lids of such boxes are made by joining 2 or 3 planks side by side. It has lovely dove tail joints, you really don't get neater joints than this! The dimensions are 125cm long, 56.25cm wide, 54.25cm tall. Only selling because I no longer have space for it. Collection is from my home in North London N4 close to Harringay train station. Cash preferred.I will not pack and post but You are welcome to arrange your own collection by Shiply or Anyvan etc if not collecting in person. Condition: Beautiful condition, some marks and chips as you would expect from a box that is well over 100 years old, it has been reinforced at some point in history under the lid, but sympathetically with a matching type of wood. it is a very strong sturdy beautifully made box that requires nothing doing to it at all, you can sit or stand on it with no worries at all. i often do to reach a book from the top shelf and i am man weighing 100kg. though not with shoes on as i would not like to mark the beautiful lid which i have polished over the years with beeswax building up a truly beautiful soft shine., Style: Victorian, Material: Pine, Product Type: Chests, Featured Refinements: Antique Blanket Box
