An excellent paint decorated lift-top blanket chest with two overlapping drawers.
The chest boasts a one-board lid and a wonderful 19th century flowing paint decoration in three colors on the front and both sides. The decoration is over an older, perhaps original, blue paint. The chest never had brasses – rare to survive in that state.
The chest is in very good condition, marred only by a shrinkage crack on the lid and the degree of paint wear expected from age and usage. It is fresh to the market out of an old collection. 19th century, Vermont origin.
Dimensions: 43½” wide x 18½” deep x 41½” high.
