UK Mainland only , - If you live in the Scottish. Here for sale at Liverpool Antiques we have a large selection of Victorian and Georgian blanket boxes. These antique trunks can be used for excellent storage and at the same time can be useful and used as a coffee table in front of a sofa or chairs whilst giving your room added character. This blanket box is truly stunning, it is guaranteed. My research has confirmed it to have been made c1835 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 ogee shaped plinth to the front and sides and original rounded edge to the top. This chest comes with the original mahogany effect scumble painted finish which has been highlighted to the front, top and sides with a stencilled pattern. The original painted colour has now been polished to a wonderful shine, along with the original polished hand made wrought iron carrying handles and penny round hinges.
This chest is in fabulous condition, the interior is like all the boxes we sell clean and tidy with some age related marks. The inside is wonderfully fitted with a candle tray that really adds to this box's character. This Old chest still has the original lock 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 look and colour.
The rest of the box has been fully restored and has been polished using traditional bees wax, both handles and hinges have been removed during the restoration process, polished and re-applied. This is a truly stunning and wonderful "museum" quality piece of furniture, a clean and solid trunk full of character, "History" and charm in fantastic condition.
