Antique English Carved Oak Bible Box Display Stand Desk Lectern Gothic
~Direct from England~
~When on a buying trip in Europe, we never pass up one of these antique Bible boxes, they’re on the permanent “must find” list…and yet this is one of the first two we have found in YEARS (another one is listed separately)~
~All the features of a genuine antique treasure….lovely worn finish, battered and chipped edges, old handmade construction, remnants of the original lock. JUST IMAGINE “the stories this Bible box could tell”!!~
~Note: these antique Bible boxes were used for storage and display of the family Bible back in the 17th, 18th, 19th centuries. The slanted top could have been used for reading an opened Bible and holding it while recording the family history of life/death/birth/marriages.~

This box is in good condition for its ADVANCED age, with typical signs of old age and use, dings, scratches, and other imperfections. It’s old and handmade and worn from what I imagine was daily use for many, many years!! No key, lock not working, some warping on the lid, as to be expected. I always provide multiple photos that should be considered as an integral part of the description and I encourage you to email me with any questions you might have prior to making a purchase. Please keep in mind antique furniture should be purchased for its uniqueness, higher quality material and craftsmanship and antique patina, charm and character….NOT for like-new condition!!!
