A large 17th century oak coffer with a beautiful five panelled front with stiff leaf carved arcade under a floral top, the moulded rectangular top with the original blacksmith ring hinges. In very good, sturdy condition with a rich patina. Sensitively restored by Anthony Beech, with reclaimed period boards in the base and the top recoloured and waxed. It would be a beautiful storage solution for blankets, toys or a croquet set.
Date: 17th century
The average piece of furniture generates approximately 47kg of carbon dioxide equivalents – roughly the same as burning 5.3 gallons of petrol. Buying this item second-hand versus a newly made equivalent recovers the energy used to make it, rather than generating further emissions and using new materials.
