  • 17th century low oak Continental coffer on original sledge feet and retaining interior till. This coffer is very similar to chests from the Avesnes/Thiérache area of Eastern Picardy which date from the 1650-1725 period. The mid height moulding, sledge feet and construction are very similar. In St Andrew’s Church, Wickhambreaux, Kent there is a chest which bears a resemblance to these examples. Possibly the Kent chest was made in France and imported or that the chest was made by an immigrant craftsman. From 1681-1685 a large number of Huguenot refuges came to England which may explain this.
