A 17th century and later inlaid oak coffer, the later four-plank hinged lid with moulded edge, the period front with fleur-de-lis and scroll frieze over four variously carved flowerhead panels separated by marquetry dog-tooth stiles, 64 x 23 x 27 high, (163cm x 58.5cm x 68.5cm).
Top has general scratches. Foremost plank is darker, edge moulding is atypical of period examples and timbers are machine cut/planed. Later hinges. Lock and lockplate missing but carcase is otherwise good and original.
