Century Spanish walnut and iron bound trunk or chest. There are around 50-100 high definition super-sized pictures at the bottom of this page. A very rare and well made fine, well over 300 years old, an amazing survivor. The trunk has been restored to include full wood worm treatment, the timber has been lightly cleaned hand condition waxed and hand polished, it doesnt have some light paint spots around the base.
The timber is all hand sawn as you would expect, the detail is truly amazing, the iron work is hand engraved, the original lock is present which seems to have some kind of bell attached to it, its not currently fitted and I dont have the key, 3 of the 4 engraved plates are missing from the corners on top, one is inside the trunk spare. This piece just screams age charm and style. Please note all measurements are taken at the widest point, if you would like any additional or specific measurements please ask.
