This wonderful, early Pennsylvania painted blanket chest has a dovetailed construction. There is vibrant original salmon colored paint evident under a later dark paint or stain. I love how it peaks through to give the blanket chest life and color. The molded lid has bread board ends and its original handmade iron hinges. Inside is the til with its hinged lid and original working iron lock. The chest rests on tall turned legs. What a wonderful example of an early PA blanket chest.
