Colonial era Solid Australian Cedar Chest Wood Storage Trunk Box ca1800s

A glorious piece of genuine Australian Colonial Cedar. Note this is solid cedar not veneer- a good indication of early manufacture when the species was plentiful. The wonderful aged patina and radiance you associated with old cedar- full of little scuffs and pits, scratches and marks that only ever seem to make these pieces even more captivating.

A great sized piece- small enough for portability and versatility in uses- whilst big enough to be of real use- and make a lovely statement wherever situated!

Length 63cm width 33cm height approx 35cm. Weight approx 6.3 kilos.

Typical Colonial era workmanship and an austere plainness of design- whilst maintaining pleasing and classical proportions. Note the original look is missing- and a brass escutcheon at front me be a later addition? The hinges appear original and are currently loose the lid can lift out of the hinges- which really just need to be tapped back into roundness to secure the top hinge to the lower on each side. Actually a very simple task to affix the hinges securely so lid stays in place. A few edge chips and minor wood losses here and there. No splits or major breaks however- just all the usual character enhancing wear associated with these early finds.
