Antique English Jacobean Style Oak Trunk circa 1820

A terrific antique English Jacobean style oak trunk circa 1820 featuring the original bowed top which opens to reveal storage. Please note the frieze with blind fret carving above the four inset panels. Each panel contains relief carving of a stylized plant with two blossoms attached to the stem that has leaves on the left and right. Because this piece was used for storage and needed to be accessible often, all of the decorative components are on the front. During the Jacobean period oak timber was the plentiful and used both for furniture and interior architectural details. The deep carving of the decorative motifs were chosen to take advantage of the dramatic interior lighting from open fires blazing and the candles lit around the room in candle sticks and chandeliers.
