An important relic that is as versatile as it is beautiful, this English lock box boasts exceptional quality and condition for its age. Also known as a ship’s chest, a sturdy lock box such as this would have protected one's valuables on a ship and during travel. The front of the box rests on brass hinges, allowing the user to open the case at both the top and the front to expose a myriad of secret compartments, offering the ultimate clandestine protection for one’s most prize possessions. As ornamental as it is functional, the box is secured by beautifully crafted decorative brass bands, while two handles on the box’s side allow for easy transportation.

Although found throughout the continent, strong boxes such as this one were found in greater numbers in England than anywhere else. While many were made in London between 1660 and 1720, few of this type have survived and are becoming increasingly rare. To find such a wonderful, well-preserved example is quite rare.

Circa 1720
