Traditional Painted "Marriage' Box from FranceTraditional Painted "Marriage' Box from FranceTraditional Painted "Marriage' Box from FranceTraditional Painted "Marriage' Box from FranceTraditional Painted "Marriage' Box from FranceTraditional Painted "Marriage' Box from France

A Beautiful and completely original example of a 19th Century Painted Marriage Box (or 'Coffre de Marriage' ) from the Normandy region of Northern France.

By tradition , the handpainted and crafted box was presented at the wedding and then used by the new wife to bring her small possessions and jewellery to her husband's house .

The domed top pine plank box with hinged lid is in good solid condition for its age,- missing the hasp and locking mechanism of the old metal lock - though still having intact all the original symbolic decorations of lovebirds, roses, flowerpot and woven rug.

Measures 17.5 inches wide x 11 high x 11 deep. Circa 1840-1880. From Normandy , France.

(Note to intending purchaser- free shipping space for another small item inside the box !)

Item ID: 1795
