  • Price : £1595


A 17th Century oak ark or hutch sourced from a private Norwich-based property.

Peg-joined construction.

Originally used for the storage of meal, corn or bread.  The lid is fixed to the base with two wooden dowels.

With scratch-carved decoration to the lid and front boards.

Our example, as with similar examples of the period, (see Victor Chinnery, Oak Furniture The British Tradition) is constructed from riven oak boards clamped between vertical stiles.

Condition - Very good colour - traces of original and later stain. Joints are sound. Some surface wear commensurate with age. The interior has been heavily cleaned back within the last five years (this was done by the previous owner who used the chest to store childrens' toys!)
