A Small Charles I Oak Chest

The front constructed from three square panels, within a moulded frame below a top rail with deep nulled carving.

The top, constructed in a similar manner ā€“ square panels within a moulded frame ā€“ opens to a vacant interior.

The ends and back are formed from single oak boards, the ends with a chamfered ā€œVā€ at the bottom.

This type of construction dates from around 1620-40 and shows the transition between the boarded or plank chest, and the more refined panelled chest.

Lovely narrow proportions, good colour and surface.

Probably Dorset, circa 1625-35.

Length 40 inches, back to front 16 inches, height 24 inches.

Ref 886
