A lovely large antique Victorian pine kist chest. We date this kist to the second half of the 19th century. The chest sits on a slightly protruding plain plinth base. The kist comprises a large rear hinged lidded box.There are metal handles on either side of the chest. The interior has a large open space, there would have originally been a large tray to the top but this has been removed at some point in the past. The kist has a lock fitted, no key is supplied but a suitable replacement should be easily obtainable. The kist has a height of 28" (71cm), a width of 49" (125cm) and a depth of 24.5 (62cm). This lovely pine kist remains in very solid condition with only minor surface markings commensurate with age and usage.
There is an amount of wear, indentations and marks to the top surface from past use. There are a few old repairs and the hinges have been replaced and repositioned at some point in the past. This remains a very stylish and functional pine kist which would function well as a toy storage box or a linen chest etc.It will continue to provide good service for many years to come.
