An unusual early 17th century oak coffer
Circa 1600-30
The lid with three plain panels within moulded-edge rails, the front with three panels, the central front panel carved with an interlaced lozenge and flower-heads, the two outer panels unusually carved with a flower-head centred stellar design, stiff-leaf carved muntins, nulled-carved top rail, on gauge-carved extended stile supports, 96cm wide x 52cm deep x 59cm high, (37.5" wide x 20" deep x 23" high)

Footnotes

  • This coffer exhibits several rare features including the lid outer rails which are joined with a 45 degree mitre-cut rather than a typical flat-face joint. The stellar carving to the outer front rails is also unusual. Compare with lot 200. The gauge-caved frame moulding to the front panels, integral to the rails, and found only on the upper edge of the top -rail and sides of the muntins is a further distinguishing feature.
