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.
