Subject:
Frame & Panel - Dates

Curt Putnam
About when did the concept of frame & panel become common in English casework?

I ask because I have a 17th century chest which has been dated to ~1650. I might be able to put an upper limit on the error margin by knowing when frame & panel entered general usage.

Thank you historians!
