18th Century Dutch Hand Carved Stripped Oak Trunk was crafted by the master artisans with a preference for the Renaissance style, and was made from indigenous old-growth quarter-sawn oak to last for centuries!  Motifs include fishscale and rosettes with octagonal panels for intriguing visual interest.  Inside one can more fully appreciate the hand-forged iron strap hinges, and the candle compartment, which was a traditional way to securely store the precious items that provided light before the advent of widescale electricity distribution.  Stripped finish makes it even more compatible with today's casual and rustic decors.
Circa 1780s
