Antique Early American country red painted blanket chest or box, New England, circa 1740. Excellent condition with original cotter pin hinges and red wash surface. Measures 47 inches wide by 18.5 inches deep by 23.5 inches high. Lovely boot jack ends, single board bottom, top and sides. Country pieces that still retain their original dry painted surfaces like this one are scarce; most have been refinished or varnished over.
I got a chair from my grandmother with carved dragons on it. After searching everywhere, I found the same chair on your website. I thought it looked Asian, but had no idea how valuable it is! I almost sold it to a friend for a hundred bucks. I am so glad I used your site to learn how much it's worth! Your price guide is such a great tool! Thanks Again!!
