A Late 17th Century Oak Document Box
Of most unusual proportions – quite long and very narrow, perhaps for the storage of rolled maps or plans. The boarded top, opening on its original butterfly hinges, to reveal a slightly oversized “till”, which again retains the original butterflies. The single board front has the original shaped iron lockplate, and shaped hasp.
Good colour and “surface”.
English, circa 1690.
Width 30 inches, back to front 9.5 inches, height 8 inches.
