A Most Unusual and Small James I Oak Chest
The two-panel top and two-panel front all set between unusually broad rails and muntins, decorated with carved strapwork, which is found on the ends, which are again divided into two panels. The top opening on the original iron hinges, to reveal an internal “till”.
A lovely and most unusual feature are the decorative spandrels, which join the legs to the bottom rail.
English, Southern, circa 1600-1620.
Width 36 inches, back to front 20 inches, height 22 inches.
