The gentle bow front of this 4-drawer chest adds to the simple grace of the piece. It has been given a waxed finish, bringing out the warmth of the wood. A pine chest of drawers such as this were typical coming of age gifts to a young woman in the 1800's of Denmark. When she traveled by train, the shipping label was attached to the back as she moved from her home with her parents to a city where she would learn a trade or work in another home. On the back of this chest is a label with the first name of Edith and the city of Copenhagen spelled in Danish. This is a fun, special find that the label remains after so many years of use.
