We are pleased to present to you this splendid Portuguese colonial chest, from the Gothic period, 16th century.
Measures: W155 - H44 - D40 cm.
Presenting an exceptional state of conservation, the facade is finely carved with floral, architectural and romantic motifs of the time, reminiscent of unloading arches as in cathedrals.
The lock is original as are the locking handle and nails that can be seen in the beautiful walnut wood.
The chest body rests on two parallel bases.
We decided to enrich it with a medieval-style silk brocade jacquard fabric, applied by our trusted upholsterer.
This type of crate was used for the transport of gold, precious stones, sugar and coffee.
As you can guess from the images, the trunk was restored in Madrid in our trusted laboratory, Professor Jorge Paz Gonzalez, specializing in the restoration of antique furniture, who managed to retain the original patina without losing the personality and identity of the case and this gives the furniture considerable added value.
