American Grain Painted Blanket Chest in Ochre Yellow, Pennsylvania, circa 1830


An absolute delight, this ochre jewel made of dense poplar and pine has a wonderful, early and complex grain painted surface created to resemble tiger and birds eye maple . The top is affixed with iron hinges, lifting to reveal a tidy interior with a till on the right side. The feet are crisply turned and lend a nice balance to the angular and relatively austere facade.
