18TH CENTURY ANTIQUE PENNSYLVANIA CHERRY CHIPPENDALE 2 DRAWER BLANKET BOX W/ HEART SHAPED HINGES
Thank you for shopping with Bay Colony Antiques. We're a third generation family owned business furnishing homes all over the world. We aggressively pursue important antiques, decorative arts, and objects of interest for our most discerning clients.
Bay Colony Antiques is extremely proud to offer for sale this exceptional 18th century antique Chippendale Pennsylvania Cherry blanket box. The box has a tall bracket base with two drawers constructed with hand cut dovetails, hand chamfered bottoms, & they both retain their original brass pulls. This didn’t come to us with a key but the original hasp, locks, and hinges are still present. The hinges have a small heart decoration at the top which is a nice example of the combination of design and functionality that you see in Pennsylvania boxes. The chest has a large storage capacity and a good sized candle till in the top left hand corner. The chest is extremely clean and is finished in the perfect warm amber color that really makes the Cherry grain pop. The box is in fantastic condition with our only notes being a stable age split to the top. The box measures 48 1/2” wide x 22 1/4” deep x 25 1/2” tall. When the lid is flipped open the height is 46 1/4” tall.
