Hand crafted in northern Europe in the 1840's, this picturesque immigrant trunk or chest is wormy pine with hand painted floral motifs resembling traditional Scandinavian rosemaling.
Hand planed with hand cut corner dovetails, this furniture has a beautiful old finish. Waxed and buffed, only an occasional wipe with a soft dry cloth is needed to maintain its warm patina.
The interior is very clean, there is a compartment with a lift lid for valuables. Hand wrought iron mounts and handles are original, there are losses to the banding as shown. The lock is missing on this large historic chest or coffer, we have added a safety chain to support the lid.
Size is 56" long, 24" deep and 29 1/2" tall.
