Extremely Rare PAINT DECORATED Federal CHILD'S Chest
An exquisitely PAINTED (not veneered) country piece emulating a fine city example. Make a statement in your home today as this little chest did some 200 years ago. Distinctive and authentic with a proud elegance owing to the sophisticated form and remarkable PAINT DECORATION created by a skilled designer, cabinet-maker, and artist. Just look at how beautifully the paint-decoration is rendered. New England, probably Southern Maine to Portsmouth NH to Salem, MA, ca. 1810-1820. Maple, basswood, and pine. Untouched including the original paint and surface, and undisturbed brass pulls. All four corners having crisply turned columns and legs with cookie-corner tops. The apron drop even retains its flaring spurs. So well cared for...in sensational condition with just minor blemishes. Proportionally perfect at about 22 inches wide x 22 tall x 11 deep.
