Lovely "Bolivian Arcon"

This 17th century, Italian coffer has not been restored.

It has the original polychrome painting and is embellished with cherubs on all four corners and acanthus leaves form the legs and feet.

This coffer (or chest) served as storage for valuables or documents and is one of the earliest forms of furniture in Europe, when the unsettled conditions made it imperative that furniture and contents be readily transported together.

It has a small chip (photographed) on one corner and the interior is in stable condition.

Considering its age it is very solid and a museum quality piece.
