SUPERB ANTIQUE FRENCH 18th C. CHURCH CANDLE BOX OR DEED BOX CARVED DATE 1767 Please scroll down for more pictures.
This is an absolutely stunning antique French church candle or deed box that carries the date 1767. I found it at an early morning village brocante and was toldby the seller that it had always been kept in a barn on a shelfbuthe had no further details as to its origin except to say that it had beenleft untouched inthe same place for as long as both he and his parents could remember. The wood was dry and screaming out for wax so we have given it a quick polish. It would polish more if required. You can see from the base where we have not waxed what it looked like when we found it. I am unsure as to the wood except that it is perhaps a fruit wood. Amazingly it is carved from one piece of wood and it had been hollowed out. It is such a stunning rustique piece that is totally tactile and is a genuine piece. One side carries the carving which appears to be W :MARC R :1767 The lid reads I.I : ROL The lid slides into place and remains in position in the carved slots at either side. The box measures: 21.25" (54cms ) by 8" (20cms) by 4.5" (12cms) A stunning large period box that is an amazing heirloom piece full of faded grandeur. If I have missed anything vital please do not hesitate to ask and I will do my best to answer. This box weighs: 3 kilos. Delicieux belle brocante chic treasures from simply-chateau.
