Cassone, Chest, Coffer, 17th Century, French, Louis XIV, Walnut
Lovely cassone with classical form, the beautiful figuring of the oak creates subtle, decorative patterning and the simple mouldings give a light, contemporary feel. The rich, lustrous patina that it has developed over time is another main feature. It would sit really well in a contemporary interior. It has a copious amount of storage and has a lovely dry clean surface inside. Beautifully made using 1 3/4" thick planks of oak which is very unusual, invariably cassones have much thinner planks and have cracks and fissures. The plank top with cleated ends and a solid moulded edge. Original hinges revealing an interior with candle box. The lock removed. The interior dry and clean. The front with a waist moulding and original escutcheon. The bottom moulding and bun feet are later replacements. Excellent original color and patina, second half of the 17th century Measures: Length 132 cm., 4 ft., 4 in., Height 65 cm., 2 ft., 2 in., Depth 61 cm., 2 ft.
Internal measurements side to side interior length including candlebox 46 1/2 in, candlebox interior 6 1/2" wide, interior depth front to back 20"
