A handsome early 18th century Dower Chest. The fielded panels and pegged construction is typical of the period. The plank top is held on iron hinges, and opens onto the main storage area, which contains a "herb" box to the left hand side (herbs for keeping fresh the stored items). Below are 2 useful drawers, finished with decorative moulding. A warm colour and original surface makes this chest a lovely example of the Age of Oak.
