17th century low Oak coffer. Continental. Thick one piece top. The front with a moulding. Sledge feet. Original candle box/interior till.
Good colour and patination. Perfect at the end of a bed or as a coffee table.
This coffer is very similar to chests from the Avesnes/Thiérache area of Eastern Picardy which date from the 1650-1725 period. The mid height moulding, sledge feet and construction are very similar. In St Andrew’s Church, Wickhambreaux, Kent there is a chest which bears a resemblance to these examples. Possibly the Kent chest was made in France and imported or that the chest was made by an immigrant craftsman. From 1681-1685 a large number of Huguenot refuges came to England which may explain this.
This can be viewed in our showrooms in North Yorkshire at any time by appointment. Please contact me on 07710 793753 with any questions or if you would like further images. Shipping and delivery can be arranged on your behalf. Or may be included depending on location.
