  • Original/Reproduction: Original
  • Age: Pre-1800
  • Material: Iron



Fantastic and Very Rare Late 16th Early 17th Century Wrought Iron Hand Made Strong Box. Probably German Nuremberg. 


Weighing 28kg

 

This Chest is very rare because of its size.

Armada Chests are usually much bigger and strong boxes normally a lot smaller, so to find one of the middling size is a very rare find. 


As you can see the lock is removable being held in place with 4 large square cut nuts and two verticle screws.

Unfortunately no key but one could be made fairly easily. 



This is a very nice example of handmade brute force workmanship. Still retaining its original leather lining.

 

Because of its weight collection is preferable and postage costs throughtout the UK will vary so please factor this in and maybe findout your own courier costs etc.




Please remember as with all Antique and secondhand items, please be your own judge About age, condition and description before purchasing as I am not an expert in such things.

Very good, see photos.

 

Dimensions;

Height approx 35cm

As with all Antique and secondhand items, please be your own judge before purchasing.

 

 

 

 

I am having a major clearout of several decades of collecting and I shall be selling all sorts of things over the next few months with no particular theme so keep an eye out for my bizarre and not so bizarre items for sale.

Any questions or any further photos, please just ask and please, please ask questions before the end of the sale. A bidder recently purchased an item and then moaned about it after the event because he hadn't read the description correctly.
