Ancient rustic shepherd’s coffer


Transylvania, 18th century


£POA

This is an excellent example of a naive hand carved shepherd’s coffer or trunk made in Transylvania in the 1700s.  Rustic mesh patterns and simplified organic symbols tattoo the surface, the mesh symbolically to deter and entangle malign influence. It has an elemental design and creates a striking presence with its dusky colouration and roughly carved forms. A similar coffer was used by Belgium taste maker Axel Vervoordt within one of his interior projects. Ultimate wabi sabi.

Weathered, open grain and showing all the hallmarks of age. In good aged condition and fully functional.

H60 L122 W54cm
