An outstanding ebonised Moorish wedding chest with mother of pearl and silver inlay.

Early 18th Century

Often gifted to a bride on arrival at her new home, wedding chests were typically decorated as richly as means would allow, showing off the bride's status and serving as a practical piece of furniture for storage of her belongings.

In good order throughout with original candle-holders to the interior. Minor repairs to the base and loss to the inlay.
