This is superb 18th century carved oak bible box with original strap hinges and a lovely fitted interior. The front has wonderful thumb nail carving and a lock and plate. The oak is a wonderful colour and patina.
The lid is sloped to the front and when the lid is lifted this reveals the fitted interior. There are four drawers with brass knobs which are held in place by little oak catches.
The front lock and plate although 18th century style is in fact a Victorian replacement. Also there is a key to the lock but this only works intermittently so we are selling this piece as not having a working lock and key and the key is only for decorative purposes.
To the sides and rear of the box are nice and simple.
The approximate dimensions are:
- 24.5 inches (62 cm) wide
- 18.5 inches (47 cm) deep
- 7 inches (18 cm) high
The bible box is 18th century.
Overall it is a wonderful bible box which would grace any home, so happy bidding. If you have time, please Check out my other items!.
The bible box is in lovely condition considering it's age, and the patina of the oak is wonderful. The box does have odd knocks / marks and shrinkage cracks commensurate with age and there is a little long dead wood worm holes to one side, all of which can be seen in the photographs. The front lock and plate although 18th century style is in fact a Victorian replacement. Also there is a key to the lock but this only works intermittently so we are selling this piece as not having a working lock and key and the key is only for decorative purposes.
