This traditional "armor" chest was hand carved about 1890 in France with three dimensional knights in the Gothic manner. This grand and richly detailed trunk was probably part of a woman's dowry.
Solid walnut, the old finish has warm antique patina and has been waxed and buffed, so all that is needed to maintain its warm glow is an occasional wipe with a soft dry cloth.
There are shrinkage separations from age, see photos. The cedar lined interior is fitted with cedar trays.
Dimensions of this historic European furniture are 61" long, 23" deep and 25" tall.
