Chest, Walnut, Textile, Wrought Iron, 17th Century

$3,634.03

About the Item

The shape of this chest, rectangular with flat top, is also the usual in this type of furniture since the Gothic in the Spanish school. It is necessary to highlight the importance that the typology has on Spanish Antique furniture, since it would last until the 19th century, especially in Andalusia, only with slight changes, the most notorious of which would be the passage of decorative elements in openwork iron, as in the present example, to use golden brass tacks drawing shields, plant themes, etc. This chest presents points in common with baroque examples of the Castilian school. Although it was the most common furniture at the time, not too many examples are preserved: compare the two 17th century chests in the Casa de Cervantes Museum (CE 202 without hardware, CE 145 with them) of Alcalá de Henares (Madrid), or with the ark dated between the middle and the end of the 18th century in the Lope de Vega House Museum (Madrid), which has the bottom part cut out." Size: 124 x 60.5 x 70 cms.
