This charming folk art marriage dowry chest was hand carved in the Black Forest area of Switzerland around 1880.

Leaf and vine motifs are beautiful on this antique fruitwood trunk. Panels of saddle leather with nailhead trim are replaced. Carved wooden handles and traditional bear paw feet 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.

Dimensions are 28" wide including handles, 15" deep and 25" tall.
