18th Century Painted Pine Coffer
REF: 1001303 / LA365352
This beautiful detailed painted coffer has seen life through the 18th, 19th, 20th and into the start of the 21st century. Wow when you consider this it has an amazing value. That is a lot time travel, if only the coffer could speak. Well in some ways it can! Just look at the charming features it presents us with, across its soft worn curves on the timber. It feels nice to the touch with the dusty blue paint clinging to every tiny scar it has gathered over the centuries. The lid has a had small losses to the side edges, a nice undulating surface and the remains of the front edge lipping. The front has four wonderful panels with a stepped internal frames, delightful scaring across the panels and three scalloped carvings to divide them up. The frames at each ends, with the same carvings, form part of the sides and legs, giving it a slight elevation. Old gnarly keys holes with the lock long gone, original hinges with pins to secure them to the lid and hook ends to cling on to the timber. All this adds to the character and history of this unique piece of furniture. Every time I find a chest or coffer, I always wonder if it will be as good as the last. This proves there are more to surface and inspire us in the future. Period: 18th Century Material: Paint and Pine
