The Elegance of Medieval Damascene

Damascene is a craft technique that originated in ancient Damascus and became popular in the Middle Ages. It involves inlaying threads of precious metal, such as gold or silver, into a base metal surface, creating intricate patterns and designs. Damascene medieval trunks and boxes are outstanding examples of this technique and stand out for their beauty and detail.

These pieces were prized for their dual function: not only did they serve as secure containers for storing valuables, but they were also display objects that adorned the palaces and residences of the nobility. Damascene not only added aesthetic value, but also symbolized the luxury and sophistication of medieval times.

The Trunk: Much More Than a Chest

The trunk, in its oldest form, was a closed box-shaped piece of furniture intended for storing personal items and merchandise. Their use dates back to ancient times, but during the Middle Ages, trunks acquired special importance. They were essential for transporting goods in caravans and on long journeys, protecting their contents from the elements and potential thieves.

Over time, trunks not only became symbols of wealth and status, but were also used to tell stories through their decoration and design. Damascene medieval trunks and boxes were works of art in themselves and were inherited from generation to generation, carrying with them the history and prestige of their owners.
