A period Chippendale 18th century Pennsylvania blanket chest over two drawers. Remnants of dark paint over red. There is no evidence of any other paint history. There is 3/4" ending out of both rear feet, and 1 1/4" ending out of the faces of both front feet. Some losses to the drawer lips.
Some cut nails were added in the 19th century along with the glue blocks. The lock is very old but replaced. The brasses are replaced.
Constructed with dovetailing to the case and front feet. The drawers are dovetailed as well. The moldings and bracket feet are applied with hand wrought rosehead nails. It has wonderful wrought iron strap hinges. Made of poplar and pine. Additional photos are attached by the link to the right.
