Large Gustavian Style Painted Coffer

  • £445.00

This is a large rustic oak coffer which dates to the mid 19th century.

It is a heavy and solid, made of solid oak and is a substantial piece which could serve a variety of purposes in any home.

The coffer has attractive panelling and a large lift up lid to the top which opens to reveal a candle box and clean interior storage space.

To the base is a single wide drawer finished with turned knobs.

I have professionally hand painted the coffer in white and grey before aging the finish to give a beautifully rustic Gustavian look.

The paintwork has been distressed and then waxed for protection.


The coffer is in solid condition with a couple of repaired shrinkage cracks to either side panel.

There are many cosmetic marks of age and use, especially to the lid and there is also a small area of damage to the corner of the lid.

The lock keeper to the lid is missing and one hinge is missing a little piece at the end.
