Date Description: Antique 19th Century Elm Blanket Chest
Country of Origin: England
Dealer Reference: U708


A mid 19th century country blanket chest with 2 drawers. Made of elm, it has exceptional charm. Standing on shaped bracket feet, the top has a rounded edge and opens to reveal a blue papered interior. The drawers, with oval brass handles, are also paper lined. Lovely original blacksmith's iron carrying handles on the sides makes it easy to move. With a polished back, this chest could be a coffee table, but the excellent proportions, beautiful grain, colour, and waxed surface makes this chest a little country gem. Circa1840
