A large early 17th century iron bound chest constructed from pine a wrapped with wrought iron straps and iron carrying handles, and a canvas lined interior. Originally this chest would have been clad in tooled leather and fastened by the iron straps. The pine timbers show the original indentations of the patterning that was once on the leather, where in which the leather was tooled after being fitted to the chest. This chest originates from France and some similar and slightly earlier 16th century leather clad examples can be found in Musée de Cluny , Paris. Overall the chest is in good condition for its age, there are some losses to the ironwork and a few minor holes in the top with some old wood worm and restorations, commensurate with age.
