Diminutive Blanket Chest, Mid-19th Century

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

This came from an old local providence family whose residence is near Brown University. The decendent was an admiral with a long Mayflower pedigree. Lots of good stuff came out of this house sale and the picker who brought it to us knew it is a clean example of diminutive size with a nice arched profile. It retains its early dark surface and interior divider.
