more.This large and handsome baroque-style pine trunk is built from stock over 1” thick and is in the form of a faux mule chest, that is, the lower front panel masquerades as a drawer. The upper front panel is boldly fluted from side to side, while the centre panel is flat. The front corners are decorated with ebonized split balusters with fluted base and capital. The top lifts on replaced strap hinges to reveal a deep storage well with complete candle box and lid on the upper left. Original iron lifting handles are mounted to the sides.
The decorative paint, while dark, is quite remarkable and it is rewarding to examine it closely. The ground is a dark stylized grain paint and floral work in red, orange, yellow, green, and white covers the whole front and top. The centre front has three circular bouquets, while a vine of leaves and buds trails across the faux drawer front, around the pressed escutcheon plate. This work is in superb condition. The design on the two-board top uses the same elements, though here it is significantly worn, in places through to wood grain. As well as being an important piece of furniture, used for storing all the household’s valuable linens, this is also a fine example of Hungarian folk art of the early to mid nineteenth century.
