16th Century antique oak coffer


England, 1500s


£800 No VAT

This oak coffer, finished with its original metal lock case, is an excellent example of a coffer or trunk made in England in the 16th Century. The size of the forged iron nails and evidence of former hinges, means we can assuredly date it to the 1500s, when it was likely used as both storage and seating when ‘chairs’ were out of reach to the common man. It has an elemental design and creates a striking presence with its warm colouration and patina. Ultimate English wabi sabi. 

The coffer is weathered, open grain and later polishing, showing all the hallmarks of age. In good, aged condition and fully functional, the lock is no longer in working order as the key is missing.
