This chest was commissioned for a wedding in June 1891. It was made in Transylvania, and is decorated with traditional Romanian symbols. It is in good original condition, with attractive navy paint and an abstract design of tulips in a vase typical of the region. Inside an inscription records the date and the name of the bride.

Chests like these were used to carry the bride’s possessions to her new house. This is an opportunity to own a piece of social history and an original folk art antique.
