An 18th Cent Continental Painted Dowry Chest Trunk

An antique hand-painted marriage or dowry chest originating from Northern Europe and dating from the late 18th century. 
Featuring subtle original handpainted decorations to the front and sides of the chest with further faded decorations to the top creating a wonderfully soft and rich design. Featuring a hinged lid, which opens to reveal a full-length compartment inside with original ironwork both to the top and the front of the chest in the form of a triangular hand-forged escutcheon.
This chest is raised on simple block feet which have also been painted in the same original medium - This blanket box would look delightful in any setting pairing itself extremely well to being used as a coffee table.

Pappilon is a Mother and Daughter collaboration of ideas spanning 'some' decades of new and old.  Both having a fascination with interiors and art we like to think we have a unique style and taste where we select individual pieces for their own stand-alone worth and value and like family, it is a growing family of ideas that makes us love what we do.

We feel that antiques which have withstood the test of time relate to a quality found in craftsmanship most often lost in today's modern age. This doesn't simply mean we stick with the old but the ethos of what we stand for is that even antiques for the future should have a consideration to its longevity and quality as well as its style.

We source pre-loved and sometimes tired pieces of furniture and items from many locations around the UK and in and around Europe. We lovingly restore each piece and sympathetically bring it back to life either by injecting it into the 21st century or restoring it back to its original state.
