Deminutive Paint-Decorated Chest
This exceptional little chest is paint-decorated in an ochre vinegar rag-rolled design over a mustard tone ground. The lid has an applied edge molding over a case that rest on a small bracket base. It retains its original lock, escutcheon, and hinges. But most unusual is the interior till which is seldom seen on boxes of this small size. In wonderful original condition with very minor surface wear consistent with age and use. Measuring approximately 12" wide.
