17th century Continental Oak Coffer

17th century Continental Oak Coffer

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.
