This chest is very different. It is a proper blanket box with plenty of storage inside but it has been made to look like a small chest of drawers. It has nice amber coloured glass handles. It is unique and a lovely piece of furniture.
It is clean inside and the bottom is sound. The key hole has a brass cover and it has the original penny hinges.
This chest could be used as a blanket box at the end of a bed, or a good size coffee table as it's a useful size for storing books, toys or blankets. The chest does have signs of use and wear with marks and blemishes. There has been a very small repair to the trim on the side at the back of the lid but it is sound. The lock is not in working order and there is no key.
One end of the chest has got some darker patches and there is a shrinkage gap to the base. The glass knobs do show some signs of wear but are a lovely feature. On the back there is a slight gap between the boards which it is made but all is sound.All in all a fab chest with a difference. Measurements at the largest points.
