Beautiful Victorian Pine Blanket Chest (With Secret Compartment). This fabulous rustic pine chest dates from around 1880. It would make a great storage option, coffee table or TV stand. It comes fitted with a candle box. The side panel lifts up to reveal a small hidden compartment which would have been used to hide valuables in.The box was painted (badly) with green gloss paint when I received it. The top has a few signs of this in the grain but I feel adds to the character. I have fully stripped it and re-finished with a blend of waxes to restore the aged look of the box, and to give sheen and protection the beautiful antique pine. It measures: 36.5 wide, 18 deep and 17 tall. It does have some knocks and marks which add to the aged character of the piece.
The top has split and been repaired too which can be seen in the photos.
