Preserving heritage in every detail, these decorative dowry chests captivate with their timeless elegance. The charming design is highlighted with four finials rising from the body of the chest creating a certain grandeur and making a nice statement. The lid hinges from the middle and reveals the holes the finials project through. While four of the leading edges have unornate carvings and the front finishes in the centre with a clasp and latch. Beneath the lid edge is a carved plate adding another detail. Stands clear of the ground on four square legs, the interior has an internal hinged storage box. The chest is jointed with hand forged iron pins, iron latch handles to the two sides. Iron clasp and latch plus a figure of eight handmade hinge to the top is charming. An early 20th century decorative dowry chest, also known as a bridal chest or hope chest, was a significant piece of furniture that held great cultural and historical importance. Dowry chests were traditionally given to brides in many cultures, including Europe, Asia, and the Middle East. They were often filled with valuable items, linens, and clothing, which the bride would bring to her new home as part of her dowry. Wonderful decorative addition to your home.
