Additional Examples of Maritime Case Furniture – Redux – the Second

I don’t know what the protocol for reducēs should be; is a redux of a redux still a redux or does it become a sequel? Anyway, following on from my recent post, Additional Examples of Maritime Case Furniture – Redux, another coffre fort, virtually identical to the example at Goodwood has popped up (see below).

William and Mary kingwood coffre fort circa 1690.

Box and trunk making was a distinct trade in the seventeenth-and eighteenth-centuries and several notable boxmakers plied their trade in London. It’s quite possible therefore that this coffre was produced by the same maker as the Goodwood coffre – even the winding key looks identical.

    Wow, with all those locks, no wonder many of these survive. The boxes would have all been destroyed trying to get into late grand-dad’s hoard (of gold)!
