SN 1056 Chest


A striking and profusely carved Oak coffer, typical of those produced in East Devon. It is dated 1697 on the lid around a stylised tulip. The front has decorative rails and uprights surrounding three panels carved with Trees of Life. The hinges have been replaced, although the back rings and remains of one hinge are still in place. The carving has heavily punched ornamentation and it looks as though it was carried out by three different individuals from the same workshop. The internal till has an attractively punched lid, and the front section has been replaced.

Dimensions: Height 31 ½ inches, Width 44 inches, Depth 21 ¾ inches
