This brightly paint-decorated pine blanket chest is from Pennsylvania, circa 1830. The chest is a convenient diminutive size at 25" x 30¾" x 18¾". The case is dovetailed, with molding applied to the lid and at the base. The piece is raised on turned acorn-form feet. The surface features the original dry green and yellow paint on a salmon ground. The chest is in overall excellent condition, with some warping to the lid. The winning bidder took this chest home for $7450 (est. $2000/3000).
