Dower Chest, Rare Small Size,
Original and Unusual Painted Decoration
Berks County/Lebanon County Area
Circa 1790 - SOLD
The thin arches, the dentil on the arch, the baluster column, and the half hearts on the corners alternating with tulips are Berks County characteristics; the large compass flower is perhaps unique. The low "C" feet are typical Lebanon County therefore, perhaps Berks County closer to Lebanon County. Only 34.5" wide rather than typical 48 or 50".
The lid with protruding applied molding is above a dovetailed case raised on molded bracket base. The ornamentation is unusual with warp around hearts featuring delicate stemmed tulips; two panels of decoration; robust balusters supporting dentilated and saw-tooth arches surmounting large, bold and unusual compass flowers flanked by tulips within tiny pots. The double panels center yet another small pot of flowers that is surmounted by a compass hex device; end panels are grained with wide brush strokes. The paint is intact but thinning; lid hinges have been moved, base is original; with rear support brackets restored.
A fairly priced diminutive and good looking chest.
