This is Croatian old traditional chest called ’’POSAVSKA SKRINJA’’ made mainly with oak, without any metal parts. It was used by our grand-grand parents in 18., 19. and first half of 20. century – just married young women brought it to husband’s house loaded with household goods. Ofcourse normal dimensions were some 90×50x70cm (WxLxH).
This one is 45×20x30cm.
I built it as surprise gift for my brother’s in law wedding this saturday for collecting wedding cards.
It was made mainly with oak leftovers, winished with some water based varnish. Those leters were burned.
