18th.c. Welsh Oak Coffer & Stand c.1780

Splendid late 18th.c. Welsh oak coffer on a five drawer stand, from Carmarthenshire c.1780. Large chest or coffer with a hinged lid made from a single inch-thick oak board with thumb moulded edge. With four raised and fielded pointed ogee arch panels across the front plus two matching panels on the sides. On the original stand with three short and two long drawers, ogee mouldings at the waist, solid oak sides and tall bracket feet. Though some of the grips appear to be replacements the brass backplates and escutcheons are believed to be original, likewise the iron hinges. With heavy oak backboards and floor. Some shrinkage to the sides of the base, otherwise excellent condition with a particularly good colour and patina.
