Transylvanian Wedding Chest

Transylvanian Wedding Chest


A 19th century wedding chest with later paint. It is decorated with a design of red and white tulips on a dark blue ground, typical of furniture from Transylvania.

Wedding chests were an important part of traditional life in Eastern Europe. Young girls would spend their teens making and acquiring goods they would need to set up their own household. On their wedding day these items would be placed in the chest and carried to their new homes.

It measures 61 x 98 x 57 cm.
