Description

An impressive Spanish leather bound and brass studded domed chest on stand.
This highly decorative and rare 17th century coffer has the original iron carrying handles, ring and pin hinges and hasp and lock plate. The two piece stand was to keep the bottom of the chest off damp stone floors.
Usually dome-topped chests need to stand well away from a wall to open, but this one is hinged two thirds of the way across the dome top and thus can stand flush with a wall.
The sides and back are covered in plain, thick hide.
This is an item that would protect its contents when travelling...the curved leather top shedding any rain water, yet clearly was highly decorated to use as a functional ornament in a great house, probably in the hall.
SIZE: 50 inches wide, 22 inches deep, 33.5 inches tall (on stands), 26 inches tall off stands.
PROVENANCE: A Northern England private collection.
Internal Ref: 8528
