Spanish Wedding Trunk, circa 1680

About

Circa 1680 Spanish Wedding Truck. Now whether or not this was handmade in the late 1600’s, like the well respected Spanish antique dealer told us, or the early 1700’s, I do not think it makes much difference. That said, when we went to restore the base, it was quite clear to us that this was something closer to 300 years old, rather than 200. Wonderful original rug type covering showing plenty of patina, in a nice warm palette makes this a great accent piece no matter where it was placed. The only real one we have ever seen.
