Amazing and very rare, Swedish marriage chest which was hand made in 1831. Its the first one we have owned and think its quite a beautiful item and a piece of Swedish folk art history which could easily belong in the Skansen museum. The build quality is second to non, with ornate detailing from bevelled edge interior, decorative hinges handles and lock as well as chunky dovetail joins. There is a glove compartment inside, and the husband and wives initials have been painted on the outside with date.
In good used sturdy condition, there are holes which have been treated and general wear as you would expect of an item this age, please see pictures. As with all vintage items there will be signs of wear and tear from use over the years.
