Description / Expertise

French Oak Coffret, circa 1480, of delightful proportions and a most attractive carved tracery front. The construction is typical of Northern France at this period with very close dove tail joints. The decoration is a superbly executed design of interlinked quatrefoils with leaf and bud centres. The lock plate is period, but is either a replacement or has been re-fixed. The hinges have been replaced with 17th Century "butterfly" hinges. It would also originally have had a till with a dowel hinged top which is now lost.
