Corsair or Nuremberg chest in riveted iron plates.
Abundant polychrome and a rare freshness present on the front, on the sides but also on the plateau. Floral and fruit motifs in contrasting colors.
The key opens a complex mechanism with 5 bolts covered with an openwork plate and decorated with foliage. Presence of a chiseled and calligraphed signature: "Johan Otto". This rare mark may be the signature of the seasoned craftsman behind this original chest or the name of the sponsor.
The facade is adorned with a false keyhole to delay any break-in. The twisted iron handles allow this chest to be transported.
Its dimensions allow it to be integrated into a wide choice of interior up to the apartment.
17th century period. Provenance Nuremberg region, Germany.
