This is a charming antique chest which is ideal for use as a blanket chest at the foot of a bed, the perfect storage solution for bedding or winter clothes. Dating to the Victorian era this piece is made of solid pine and is heavy and well made with a rustic country look which would compliment many interior styles. The chest is fitted with a deeply upholstered lid which has been newly reupholstered in quality heavy hessian fabric and finished with slightly contrasting braiding. The lid opens to reveal a clean internal storage space with a panelled base. The wood has a natural waxed finish which has quite a low sheen.
The chest is in solid structural condition having been checked over in our workshop but has many small marks of age and use. The ends would have once had wooden batons and rope handles, these had already gone when we acquired the chest, you can see faint shadows where they once sat. The front panel is quite pitted and marked and internally the chest is missing its candle box to the left hand side. Please take a glance at our other items, we list new things every week.
