A Flemish oak chest front, mid 16th century, with four carved figures in full round with floral carving above and beneath.
Height 28.5", width 46", depth 4".
Includes later framing on the top, bottom, and sides.
Over the centuries, the fronts of early chests with decorative carvings were often saved when the rest of the chest may have fallen into disrepair and was descarded.
Suggested uses: Antique chest fronts can make a striking accent piece for a room. They may be used as an overmantel, a footboard or headboard to a bed (attached to the wall or to the bed frame), or simply as artwork attached to a wall.
