Large Vintage Kiaat Kist Description

This large kiaat kist is a versatile piece of furniture and is a particularly beautiful example from its era. In excellent original condition it’s well constructed from solid kiaat with ball and claw feet, scalloped detail on the lid and solid brass fittings. It still has its original sliding storage tray. Further to it’s intended functional purpose it would make a lovely coffee table or a practical bed end. The finish on it ensures it doesn’t have to be tucked away in a dark corner merely as a “storage box”.

Furniture made in this era was built to last a lifetime. Kiaat is becoming increasingly rare and collectable.  Because it is a hardwood it takes the trees so long to mature that they cannot grow quickly enough to keep pace with demand.
