Charles II Oak and Ebony Coffer An important 17th Century Oak Coffer, the hinged lid of plank construction opening to a candle box and tray, above a frieze with ebonised lozenge and bar appliques above a carved band and three panel front, each panel with geometric ebonised appliques and panels within mouldings, the stiles with ebonised geometric and split turned mouldings, the whole with panelled ends and raised on stiles.   Note: Often referred to as Country Furniture, pieces of this nature were not made by estate joiners but would have been made in the major towns and cities. The degree of complexity would have made this an expensive "showpiece" when it was first made and strongly suggests it would been made for a more important household.
