An impressive French Gothic style walnut chest, with five carved figures within arches under typical Gothic carving.  Similar arches and Gothic tracery on the sides.  


The front piece is from an early Medieval period chest, but all of the rest of the wood parts are later and all of the carving, including on the front, is later.   Formally with a till box.  The lock plate is genuine from the 15th/16th century, and the handles and hinges are also likely early.  Evidence of at least two earlier locks on the front.  Modifications to the front corner structure.  


Width 49", height 34", depth 24".
