Pine Blanket Chest in Original Decorative Paint



This beautifully painted primitive trunk is nailed rather than dovetailed. The front bears two stylized urns of flowers within painted panels with multicolored floral work between and around them. The sides show a bouquet of flowers, tied with a ribbon, with colorful feather-like ferns surrounding the wrought iron handles. The top shares elements of both designs and is more worn, as expected. The top lifts on original iron strap hinges to a deep storage well with a lidded candle box on the upper left. The original lock and key are present but in not quite working order. Romania, circa 1870.
