This large, natural colored oak trunk from Germany is from the beginning of the 18th century and features magnificent and wide, pierced, scrolling, iron strapping. The motifs, which cover a substantial portion of the façade as well as the domed top, consist of intricate scrolling foliation. The two side decorations span the length of the front as well as the full top, while the wider, center section adorns only the front and half of the top. Two original side handles, and rear hinge straps complete the ironwork.

The chest opens by an iron pull to reveal a clean and cavernous interior, perfect for storing all sorts of household items. The top can be locked via a large key (contemporary).

This is an attractive example of storage trunks that were made in Germany and Northeastern France from the 1600’s to the 1800’s. The model seen here is particularly appealing with it’s lightly polished natural color and iron hinge straps.

CONDITION: Good antique condition. Some minor missing wood and parts of iron work as seen in photos. Age splits.
