Description
For sale is an 18th Century, strong and robustly built Swedish travel chest in a decorative blue paint. - This large Swedish oval shaped travelling chest is a testament to its maker some 270+ years ago in rural Sweden. - The bentwood travel chest has been built in a reinforced manner with decorative iron strapwork, fastening loops and handle, much as you see on more familiar 19th and 20th Century travel trunks made of leather. - The lid has a small linen pouch attached to the underside. - The chest has been both overpainted at some stage in a blue paint which has then been partially removed during its lifespan. The internal colour is a base white/cream. - This travel chest has some lovely decorative ironwork, handle and includes the original pressure release lock and key. - The chest is in good used condition, with an age-worn patina throughout, marks, cracks and scuffs. A lovely nearly 300 year old travel chest from rural Sweden in an attractive and decorative blue paint.
