A French storage chest from the 19th century. Most likely from the Auvergne region it is made from pine. Originally designed for storing bed linen, this would be a lovely piece at the end of a bed. Inside there is a small storage area for cotton and trimmings used for repairs. The trunk is raised on feet making it practical for cleaning beneath.
