This blanket box / mule chest is truly stunning, it is guaranteed. My research has confirmed it to have been made c1830's out of pine using a traditional through cut dove tail construction method. The timber that has been used for this box is Quebec yellow pine with beautiful figure, it also has its original moulded plinth and original round moulded edge to the top. It also comes with one full width delightful draw to the bottom with original turned wooden knobs.The years of use have just added to the look and feel of this wonderful chest which has polished to reveal the most amazing character and a fantastic shine. This chest is in fabulous condition, the interior is like all the boxes we sell clean and tidy with some age related marks.
This Old chest still has the original locks inside. A trunk that I'm sure could tell a story or two, the years of use have really added to this box's character, which have developed into a fabulous rich all over worn and nutty colour. The rest of the box has been fully restored and has been polished using traditional bees wax.
This is a truly stunning and wonderful quality piece of furniture, a clean and solid trunk full of character, "History" and charm in fantastic condition. You will not find a better box for sale than this one for a long time!!
