XVth century leather covered chest  En stock

Ash box covered with embossed leather, origin North of France or Flanders. Period 2nd half of 15th century The wood, ash from the Ardennes, cut several decades ago, has dried in optimal conditions for quality maturation. It was cut and assembled according to the original model. Once made, I covered the box with 0.8mm thick vegetable tanned leather, fully embossed and incised according to the photos of the original model. Everything was glued with fish glue. Then came the work of all the fittings, handle and lock, all forged by hand. Work with hammer, saw, files and chisels. Rolling up the hinges and riveting them took a long time. The assembled lock is made of several pieces, all according to traditional methods. The forged and coiled keys gave work and the locking of the lock was adapted to these keys. Once the fittings were applied, I dressed the inside of the box in parchment glued with fish glue and I painted it using the tempera method (egg, linseed oil and natural cadmium red pigment) "A great challenge for an autodidact like me and just a crazy pleasure of a team work of enthusiasts, a work of research on the work of wood, assembly, forge, locksmith and leather which will lead to other research challenges "dixit Manu since we made the box with 4 hands. All the work is critical and the absolute does not exist but these discoveries make us want to go further in understanding and perfection, but let us be happy and proud of this result.
