This is a wonderful c. 1670-1680 English oak bible box that retains its original and heavily patinated finish. The box is in overall unrestored good condition. It has lost its lock, but retains the original lock plate. The hinges were replaced in the 18th c. and have suffered even more wear; one hinge has broken at the back, but I am going to leave it as is as I believe the condition adds to the character of the box. As you can see from the photos, there is wear to the bottom corners of the box and a little chunk is missing from one side which reveals the original square cut hand hammered nail. This would add a wonderful decorative and historical detail to any library or family room. Thanks for visiting.
