17th century Spanish Strong Box

TRESORS TROUVES
Handsome and rare strongbox from Spain of very good size. Made out of wrought iron on wood with two working locks. In front of these locks there is an extra wrought iron cover, that could also be locked with a padlock. This piece probably kept safe and dry some very important documents and items for the owner. We believe it is highly likely that 3 people were needed to open the box (because of the 3 locks). Apart from it being a rare and unique piece, it is very beautiful and a great example of an historic piece.
Spain, around 1650-1700. Weathered, old repairs. This item can be sent to the UK for Euros 60.
H:30cm (12in) W:43cm (17in) D:29cm (11,5in)

My name is Vincent and I founded my company at the beginning of 2013 after having been a passionate collector of antiques since my childhood. For me finding a beautiful antique object is a real treasure hunt whether it is a valuable 17th century piece or a tiny broken fragment with its beautiful patina. This is why I have chosen the name “Trésors-Trouvés”. The fact that I had the opportunity to turn my passion into my profession, being a “treasure hunter”, is something I am very grateful for.

For Trésors-Trouvés I travel through France every month and to England several times a year to find those special items that I think will enhance this collection. My vision about antique objects is that the items should fit in a modern and minimalist environment as well as it could suit a classical interior. Colors and settings change but the right object stays precious and timeless.

My goal is to share my passion with you and of course to be a source of beautiful objects for your company or your private collection.

I hope you like this collection and I am looking forward to welcoming you as a new client.
