Cherry Blanket Box with dovetail corners made about 1850. The box is made of solid cherry except for the back and bottom which are poplar. This is an early American box where you can feel some hand plane contours inside and some screws are blacksmith made. It is handmade with large dovetail construction on all four corners. It is extremely solid and in excellent condition. It has been refinished with the natural cherry patina showing. It also has a small lidded box on the inside to hold small personal items. The box is 17 1/2 inches tall, is 35 inches wide and 16 inches deep and weighs 40 pounds. This can be boxed and shipped FedEx Ground. I build custom boxes to ship this item. A wonderful item for many areas in the home, foot of a bed, coffee table, or game room storage.
