Handsome Antique Heavily Carved European Chest 16th - 17th Century!
A beautiful hand carved European chest or cabinet. It opens in the front and would make an excellent TV or entertainment stand or entry way piece. The carving is truly a work of art, clearly done by a skilled craftsman, possibly dating as far back as the late 16th ( 1500s ) to early 17th ( 1600s )century with later restoration. Roughly 30"h x 25"d x 50"w. Key included!!
Interior contains a metal support added perhaps to contain a safe or something.
My suspicions were confirmed today during a visit from another experienced antique dealer. This is most likely very old, therefore I'm changing the description from a conservative 18th / 19th dating to likely 16th / 17th century.
Wear and imperfections from age, use, and movement.
