5,900.00 8,500.00

Stately and large, this antique 17th century Italian bridal trunk was handcrafted of Italian native oak (Quercus frainetto) with hand-forged hardware. Rich, dark, well-preserved patina illustrates generations of fine aging and utility. Solid and sturdy structurally.

The cassone, the Italian name for the nuptial estate chest, and both traditional and primitive symbol of hope and happiness, was actually the most important furniture of its time as it would be filled with treasures passed on by relatives to the next generation.
