Product Description

Beautiful hand crafted Italian Cassone c.1600s. We love this chest, faults and all, mainly because it is a survivor! There are several condition issues but for 400ish years old we should look so good. We can appreciate the hand-carving and love the wood medallion that surrounded the locking mechanism (lock is no longer on the piece). There are chips/gouges to the wood, inactive worm holes, the original hinges are damaged and have been reinforced with a traditional hinges (as you can see by the pictures provided), one of the claw feet is significantly damaged and the other foot is not real secure on the chest but can easily be fixed (we like to leave our items as found and let the new owners decide how or if to repair/refinish). The lid shows dings, wood chips/loss and worm holes. Even in this condition the cassone would make a wonderful place to house your prized collectibles/heirlooms. Besides the loose front foot the chest is solid/sturdy, sits straight and a heavy piece of furniture (approximately 70 pounds). Please review the photographs provided to see the condition details up close. Dimensions: 19" tall x 46.5" wide x 21" deep. Please mouse over or click on any photograph to see the condition details up close.
