Antique English Dowry Chest

This English Dowry Chest has literally just been restored to its former glory. Dating from the mid-1800s, its original purpose was to collect items such as clothing and household linen, by unmarried young women in anticipation of married life. Handmade from European pine, with original forged metal handles, an internal candle box and stunning painted decoration on the front panel, it now makes for a practical coffee table, blanket box or toy box.For some more inspiration about Vintage Trunks and Chests why not visit our blog here
