A very old, well-weathered six plank coffer or sword chest constructed from thick oak, which has a rich, aged patina

The coffer has a hinged top and mouldings applied to the front. The initials ‘I’ and ‘C’ are visible on the front. It also retains the original asymmetric lock plate (although strap and key are missing) and a lidded candle box inside. There is considerable age-related wear and tear to this piece, as would be expected, given its age, and signs of historic woodworm. But all our items are treated for woodwork as a matter of course.

The extent of the wear and tear makes this an extraordinarily characterful piece, as well as a practical one, providing useful storage space.

Mole Vintage is run by husband and wife, Kevin and Sara Moore and grew out of our shared enthusiasm for sourcing unusual and characterful vintage items.  We are not especially interested in (or expert about) high-end antiques, or followers of current trends, nor bound by a particular period, but we are drawn to pieces which have a strong presence.  Either because of their inherent quality and design, or because they are something unique or eye-catching. 

Much, but not all, of our furniture, lighting, mirrors and decorative items are sourced in France, where we have developed a great network of local dealers since we started six years ago.
