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.
P.S. 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, movement, and use. Carving is detailed and exquisite! Wear to bottom on sides. Inside center outfitted with metal frame(added much later), presumably to enable weight bearing or perhaps it contained a safe at one time.”
