19th Century Pine Wood Coffer or Trunk with Shield-Like Carvings on the Front


A Swedish 19th century wood coffer. This Swedish trunk from the 19th century features carved pine wood featuring an oval design at its top and two carved patterns on the front, reminiscent of a pair of shields. This pine chest has a natural wood finish with lots of great knotting showing throughout. This piece also features lovely carved dovetail joints at the corners. This blanket chest also has its original iron hardware. This Swedish coffer chest from the 19th century would be perfect at the foot of a bed, behind a couch in a living room, or perhaps used as a coffee table.
