Walnut wood
Good condition

With a decor of lively scenes in cartouches including the Massacre of the Innocents and a concert scene.

This rare walnut chest is richly adorned with a decor treated in low-relief, pyrography and Indian ink drawings. The facade is divided by four characters standing under architectural canopies flanking three panels set in moulded frames. On the central panel can be guessed a naval scene ; two ships sailing on the waves. On the right hand side panel is depicted a concert scene with a lavish meal set on a table. On the left hand side panel appears a country scene with two lovers conversing in a garden. Above the scenes lions are facing eachother and flanking shields.

The lateral sides are adorned with drawn decors. In the center is set a double eagle-head handle. Additional motifs embellish the lid but are today hard to read.

The inner face of the lid presents a scene easier to distinguish. The composition is centered around an empty shield amongst animals including two chimaeras.

This chest was probably made for a young bride and her groom and would host the girl’s trousseau. On the left hand side an opening would allow her to have an easy access to her jewels, letters or other small items.
