Exceptionally Rare Early 16th Century Henry VII Period English Antique Oak able Top Box or Casket, Circa 1500

Information

Sadly, we have been let down by the buyer of this lovely box.  After weeks of assurances that we would be paid by a new client from overseas, nothing has been forthcoming so we now have no option but to re-offer this for sale.  

This is a very rare Tudor domed-top box / table top casket in virtually untouched condition.

The lid is secured to the carcass by way of original iron hinges and locked by an iron hasp to a later lockplate.

The front is carved with simple linefold panels and is decorated with scratchwork decoration and chip carving to the outer edges as per the images.

The base is in nice original dry condition with wear. The square pegging, chip carved edges, and simple linenfold panels indicate a date of circa 1500, made during the reign of Henry VII.

Condition - as per images. Traces of old worm activity (long since gone and treated too as a precautionary measure).
