Set of Paint Decorated Drawers
This set of hanging drawers is elaborately paint decorated in an ochre colored vinegar decoration. There are six dovetailed drawers housed in a dovetailed case with applied backboard. This piece can sit on a counter or be hung on the wall. There are a few holes on the inside where old screws had been used to hang it. All but one of the knobs appear to be original. And the one that has a slightly different hue to its color may also be original, but you be the judge. The backboard has an age crack. There is some wear, but all-in-all the surface is in fine condition for its age. Ca. 1840-1860. Origin is unknown, but I am guessing Vermont or New Hampshire. Measuring 19" wide by 16 1/2" tall and just 8" deep. A great set of drawers!
