austrian antique painted wedding chest

The Salzburg pedestal chest was given on the occasion of a wedding in 1748. The farmer’s chest is in excellent original condition. The colors of the chest are strong but muted, the choice of motifs in the narrow longitudinal fields is unusual. The division of the base into two painted corner fields, as well as the carved base board between them with the year and name increase the value of this chest. All fields are framed with profiled strips. The two main fields are centered with octagonal frames filled with a bouquet of flowers. The lid also has a profiled frame. Iron handles on the sides, as well as the iron bands, lock and key are perfectly preserved. Inside there is the large side drawer and a narrow compartment along the back wall. A fantastic wedding chest!
