Gothic linenfold chest in wallnut - Circa 1500

This Gothic walnut wooden chest, with an exceptional patina, is a good example of furniture intended to be transported during the often frequent journeys made by quality people in medieval times.
Very simple in appearance, this six-ply napkin chest is actually very beautifully crafted and refined.

This type of storage box could be moved very easily and also served as a seat, given their small elevation. It is also equipped and furnished with a side compartment, closing with a flap.
Assembled with dovetail, it is made of three side and front panels, each made of a single thick board.
While the sides are smooth and have wrought iron handles for transport, the facade is carved from the mass of six very tight and rather raised napkin folds, characteristic of the extreme end of the Middle Ages.
The surface lock entry is in the shape of an escutcheon, and the original tray is made of a single piece of board.

This very beautiful chest is distinguished not only by the nature of its walnut wood, which is still quite rare at that time, but also by its assembly work, and the perfect harmony of its composition.
