17th Century Oak Coffer



Nothing very exceptionable about this small coffer but for Anthony J Sargeant it has some sentimental value because it was the first piece of antique oak furniture that he ever bought before he went into business as an antique dealer. It has since moved with him on a number of occasions. It was bought in part because of the original and interesting carving to the front panel but mostly because of the original c. 1600 owners initials TS – (standing for Tony Sargeant in the 20th Century).
