Large Painted Early 19th Century Estate Chest
An imposing painted Chest with original paint to the interior. Sourced from a large estate in East Flanders, where it had originally been installed in the dining hall as a display cabinet. It was then altered in the early 20th Century to a ¨Kleerkast¨/ with deeply patina’d metal rail in a deep red tone.
All original stunning hand forged hardware and locks are intact. Working key.
The interior of this piece is stunning: all the original layers of paint are visible, creating a wonderful look to this piece. Traces of turquoise, green and black paint are visible, along with markings where the original shelving was once fixed. The exterior of this piece has been professionally painted with a beautiful, clean, but distressed finish which contrasts well with the well worn interior .
