18th Century Blanket Chest in Blue Paint,
Only 36.75 Inches Wide
Coastal Connecticut, circa 1730
Ex Lillian Blankley Cogan Collection - SOLD
Lift-top lid retaining original cleats and snipe hinges above chest having a single drawer;
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
whole raised on molded base resting on cutout feet. Early 19th century blue paint over
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.
