This exquisite painted chest is 13" w., 7 1/2" d., & 8 1/2" overall ht. The paint is original and in an excellent state of preservation! The lid is secured to the base with very early wire pintle hinges. Under black light examination there is no evidence of over painting anywhere, only normal wear is exhibited. The base is secured by very early rosetted wire nails and appear to be original. A very choice early miniature chest with escutheon and original lock (w/o key) for the discerning collector!
