A coffer was considered to be a chest of importance. These were specifically commissioned chests made for individuals to store their personal belongings. They were often created by local joiners and artists and were used for general-purpose items. Some coffers were also used for seating as well as for sleeping on. It was common for adults to have their own coffers, and at times, children would also have their own individual coffers. Amongst wealthier families, it was not uncommon for an individual to have multiple coffers.
This piece is complete with its working key and lock.
