Seller: ladyellensfinewarestore (2,125) 100%, Location: Chester, New Jersey, Ships to: Free Local Pickup, Item: 163371782458 YOU'LL 'PINE' FOR THIS IF YOU LOVE ANTIQUES! NOTE; WE DELIVER. JUST ASK US FOR HELP! This is a genuine 18th c American Pine Bootjack Blanket Chest of early construction and origin Eastern region also known as a blanket box or dowry chest for storage of precious commodities and belongings of an era long past. Please look at all pictures above taken at various angles of the merits and characteristics of the furniture piece. Made of pumpkin pine, it is the type that gets honey golden pumpkiny rich color as it ages due to sap content. The interior is a clean pine natural grain with no finish and very clean smell. Set on a high cutout bootjack leg, with single flip top, exterior heart shaped original brass escutcheon over old iron lock (has no key any longer), cockbeaded lid detail on edge, and generous side divider, it not only exudes 18th c charm but is highly useful around a modern home as well for a serious collector who appreciates the beauty of early American craftsmanship. Measurements are 25" tall, 17" deep and 36" wide. This is not only a easily manageable size, but echoes a time frame where homes were smaller, supplies were precious, and personal possessions were very few. The exterior is natural patina, has never been painted nor stripped or refinished in its life, it stands as is as was as always made more than 200 years ago. I don't have to speak much, for it speaks highly for itself!! Condition Report: Clean and sound not shaky nor dirty nor greasy. Divider board inside may be a later date possibly. Small early repair to one side as shown in pictures with old cut nails limited to a small patched area, but is smooth and nicely done. Feet have no loss of height. Non smoking home. Some minor wear to cockbeaded molding from constant lifting and handling the lid through the years. Replaced right inner hinge for strength, and repaired, retightened hinge joints from constant top lifting action on soft pine have been neatly reinforced with clean pine to allow another generation of lid lifting up and down without stress to the lid panel . A skilled experienced craftsman has tended carefully to any repairs needed to make perfect for new owner. Consistent wear and soft patina commensurate for its age and use, used but NOT abused in any way. This is a period antique classified as primitive Americana. Non smoker house, no moldy odor. Bottom boards clean and dry as peek underneath shows. Leather holdback strap protects top from wrenching wide open and stressing hinge area. Fresh to market deaccessioned from private New Jersey collection, first time being shown again in 40 years.
