The twin panelled hinged lid above a twin panelled flowerhead centred front, and lunette carved top-rail, 88.5cm wide x 45.5cm deep x 49.5cm high, (34.5" wide x 17.5" deep x 19" high)
Comparative literature: Furniture-making in 17th and 18th century England, R.W.Symonds, p.17, fig.32 and 33, illustrates two extremely similar panelled coffers, with the distinctive single flowerhead roundel to the front panels. The author notes that there is little doubt they came from the same workshop. One was found in East Anglia, the other in London. The oak is referred to as being probably of English growth.
