Antique Six Board Blanket Chest with Original Red Paint. This "antique storage chest" measures 42 and three quarters inches wide by 16 and three quarters inches deep and is 15 inches high. The inside measures 40 and three eighths inches wide by 15 inches deep and is 13 and one quarter inches high. The original red paint can be seen in one of the accompanying photographs. This period American blanket box dates from 1790 to1820 and has lovely hand cut dovetails. We rarely find pieces with their original paint and almost never in red paint.
