Museum quality William & Mary painted pine blanket chest. The chest sports old red paint over the original red and outstanding bun front feet similar to the feet on some Hudson Valley kasten. Other features of note include original snipe hinges, a thumbnail molded lid, early moldings on the case, and early large dovetails on the drawer. The chest is in good condition, with some minor damage to the drawer and the expected wear and tear from age and usage. It would constitute an important addition to any early American furniture collection. Mid-18th century, probably New York origin.
Dimensions: 40” wide x 33½” high x 18¼” deep.
