A Small Charles I “Transitional” Oak Chest
Displaying the transition between plank and panelled construction. The top and front are both framed and panelled, whilst the back and bottom are single oak boards. The boarded ends are cut with an elongated “V” to form the legs, as one would find in a plank chest.
The top rail of the framed front has nulling, or gouge carving, which is normally found in the South, especially around Dorset. Lovely narrow proportions.
Length 40 inches, depth 16 inches, height 25 inches.
