Antique French Chestnut Coffer


This is a terrific multipurpose piece, to be used at the end of the bed or up against a wall, as storage and a seat, and sometimes as a long narrow coffee table when there is just a narrow space available in front of a sofa. Lovely patinated chestnut with a unattached lift-top, and well-made panels, this trunk offers lots of storage.
