17th Century Oak & Inlaid Leeds Coffer

An outstanding 17th Century Oak & Inlaid Leeds Coffer in fabulous clean original condition. Retaining the most extraordinary original ring hinges of large size, wonderful clean drawer linings, interior and back. Having almost all of the superb original marquetry and inlaid banding still in place. The piece has obviously been well cared for over the years and was probably in Calydon House in Buckinghamshire for many years. It is thought that the Coffer was the property of Lady Verney who donated Claydon House to the National Trust in 1956.
The piece is of particularly large size and of solid construction with good thick top boards, it is one of the best examples we’ve seen. The whole front carved with strap work and the stiles with typical grape and vine, the inlaid marquetry panels in contrasting bog Oak and Holly depicting Carnations, tulips and scrolling foliage.
Of further interest regarding this piece are the keys that work the locks, they are 18th Century and have the name Samuel Gale stamped on the metal work attached to the decorated period key ring.
It is possible that the chest at some stage belonged to Samuel Gale a founder member of the Society of Antiquaries and a godson of Samuel Pepys.
