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/ mule chest is truly stunning, it is guaranteed. My research has confirmed it to have been made c1863 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 all round original plinth and original moulded section edge to the top. This chest still has its original polished hand made wrought iron carrying handles and original solid brass hinges, that have also been hand made.
This chest is in fabulous condition, the interior is like all the boxes we sell clean and tidy with some age related marks, and comes with the additional storage draw that still has its original hand turned knobs. A mule chest that 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 nutty 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.You will not find a better box for sale than this one for a long time!! I make no apologies for the price it is worth every penny! Please ask for additional photos, we have plenty more but can only list 12 on this page.
