Antique Marriage Chest With Love Heart
A good condition antique pine box or chest dated ‘1907’ from the Eastern part of the Austrian Empire, this traditional design of a red twinned heart amidst flowers is symbolic and typically found in this part of Europe, which is in the present day where Ukraine, Romania and Moldova meet. Several such trunks with this design on it have been found in Canada, brought over by immigrants in the early 20th cent.
The interior is lined in old paper which is contemporary with manufacture, a German language broadsheet based in Czernowitz.
