This charming folk art marriage dowry chest was hand carved in the Black Forest area of Switzerland around 1880.
Fruit and vine motifs are beautiful on this antique fruitwood trunk. Worn appliques of hand stitched needlework band this antique furniture. Cast brass handles are original.
The original finish has been waxed and buffed, so all that is needed to maintain its luster is an occasional wipe with a soft dry cloth.
There are shrinkage separations from age, see photos. Size is 27" wide, 16" deep and 17 1/2" tall.
