Antique Large Original Hand-Painted Trunk Blanket Chest with Panels and Floral Details

This large and impressive blanket chest still retains its original deep colors, including elaborate hand-painted floral details along the front 3 panels. The base color is a very dark brown that almost appears black to the eye, and is accented by the deep red paint of the flowers and trim. Notice the hand-wrought iron handles and interior long hinges. Please examine the close up photos to appreciate the paint detail and natural distressing that has occurred over many years of use. This large trunk has not been altered in any way since we purchased it in Europe. They buyer may decide to wax it in order to bring out the luster in the original paint, but we have left it unfinished for the discretion of the buyer. 

This original painted trunk is part of our “un-restored” collection and is being sold in "as is, used" original condition. You are welcome to contact us directly if you would like to learn more about this or other items, we will be happy to assist you further.
