19th Century French Walnut Gothic Trunk represents the epitome of hand-crafted excellence, in what experts agree is the oldest formal furniture style, dating back to the mid-12th century!  Sculpting the sumptuous French walnut into fascinating geometric patterns for each of 6 panels, the artisans then defined the panels in the front into sections separated by spiral and fishscale-patterned half-columns resting upon plinths with recessed spire motifs.  The back shows its hand-hewn origins, and the top hinges up to reveal capacious storage inside!
Circa 1870s
