Hand crafted about 1840 in Europe, this pine immigrant trunk or blanket chest has a dome shaped top and hand cut dovetail joints. This design was intended to keep it on the top of a pile in a ship's hold instead of on the bottom.
Original hand painted graining is well worn, and preserved with clear varnish. Carved into the top are initials, "CH. OP." Wrought iron handles are original, part of the lock is missing. This antique furniture was constructed with wooden pegs instead of nails.
Size is 49" long, 26" deep and 27" tall.
