Bay Colony Antiques is pleased to offer for sale this fantastic 18th century grain painted blanket box / chest. The chest has three drawers all with their original brass hardware and the chest retains it’s original hinges, lock, and hasp. The drawers have hand cut dovetails and hand chamfered bottoms and are rich with tool & scribe marks. The chest has a two board back with original rose head nails and the original hinges are still present and work as intended. We photographed this in bright sunlight and the grain painting is a little faded because of it’s age but can be best seen in our side shots. The chest exhibits nice proportions on an elongated bracket base with a great scrolling pattern. The chest measures 37 1/2” wide x 18 1/4” deep x 43” tall. When the lift top is fully open the height is 60 1/4” tall. The upper cavity has useable dimensions of 34 1/2” wide x 15 1/2” deep x 11 7/8” tall.
