More information

Elizabeth I joined oak chest, Devon. Standing 9" off the floor, this chest is in remarkably good condition, with its original grey untouched surface with a very rich deep red colour underneath, which is typical to the east Devon region. Carved with a rosette panel with leafy decoration, flanked by guilloche carved stiles, a deep channel moulding to the bottom with stamp decoration and a beautifully laid out nulled frieze which is consistent in Elizabethan design of the Devon area. Small repair to the lid where the original lock would have sat.
