"CUR" at the beginning of an image file name means that the image was created by a curatorial staff member. These study images may be digital point-and-shoot photographs, when we don\'t yet have high-quality studio photography, or they may be scans of older negatives, slides, or photographic prints, providing historical documentation of the object.
Decorated pine blanket chest with one drawer. The legs are cut in a simple half-circle from the end boards. A two-part half-round molding is used at either end of the front and to separate the drawer from the chest area. Below the drawer a thick plain molding is attached. The chest is decorated with an overall floral pattern which consists of a plant or tree-of-life and begins at the bottom of the center of the drawer and branches out over the drawer and chest area in a simple white line terminating at many places in petal flowers and tulip forms. The sides are plain, stained the same reddish-brown as the front. The mustard center, and the round - petalled flowers have blue petals with a brasses, in the original holes, are in the Queen Anne style. It was made in Taunton, Massachusetts.
Condition: Completely worn and rotted where the lock originally was, otherwise minor wear but condition essentially good.
