Crafted during the 1500's, this oak diamond panel coffer, adorned with inlaid rope bands, stands as a testament to the exquisite craftsmanship of its time.

From the Middle Ages, a coffer was used to store valuables, clothing and other items, and since most people lived simply, these pieces were mostly used in wealthy households.

They reflect both practicality and artistry, serving as a cherished heirloom across centuries.

Amazingly, this piece has endured through the Renaissance, Baroque and Rococo periods; and even through White Settlement, multiple civil and world wars, and may have even been around during Michelangelo's lifetime!  

While the diamonds embellishing the cover were added at a later period, they seamlessly complement the coffer's original design.

In your modern home, it could serve as a distinctive accent piece, doubling as a stylish storage solution for blankets, books, or other items, adding a touch of history and sophistication to any space. 

What an amazing piece - embodying the enduring appeal of classical furniture.

60cm H x 108cm L x 48cm D.

Very good condition - crack across the top lid.  Some minor marks, scratches, chips - remembering this piece is 400 - 500 years old.
