17th Century Italian Cassone Wedding Chest

$7,077.84

About

The cassone (plural "cassoni") was a large decorated wooden chest, primarily made in Italy. Cassoni were traditionally given to a bride by her parents, and were often placed at the foot of her bed. This 17th century example is in dark wood with a rich patina, and decorated with a variety of detailed vegetal and classical motifs. In the center front panel is a rather stern looking carving of a man's head. The hinges and hardware are wrought iron. The lock mechanism is still functional and the key is included.
