A rare and unusually large English antique iron bound oak boarded armourer’s chest or coffer of simple form typical of the period. Note the early feature of protruding tenons secured with wooden pegs. Most of the iron work is original. Note the early period chip carved edges. The nails used are iron and hand forged.
