drawer features original carved wooden pulls. The front of case is molded; proper right
side is missing 1/3 of molding which we can have made and surface matched. The

original surface history. The drawer support rails are well-worn as are conforming
sections of drawer secondary wood. Found on the left proper side is a substantial hole
that likely stared as a knothole and was probably enlarged by mice. Minor wear to back
feet. The surface except top displays a dry patina; the top is shiny…we had our surface
expert test a small area with solvent. The hard shine was quickly removed.

This important painted blanket chest perfectly demonstrates the kaleidoscope of motion and color favored during the early nineteenth century. The chest features a lift-top with applied half-round moldings above a deep storage compartment above two long-drawers retaining original brass hardware. The chest is raised on distinctive stylized cutout bracket feet; this same foot is found on numerous other case pieces by noted cabinetmaker-Abiel White. Construction techniques consistent with Abiel White’s work further confirm this attribution. The blanket chest is in excellent original condition including paint.
