Jacobian Blanket Chest
A nice, Jacobian style blanket chest. The carved top and front are very nice. To us, the nature of the carvings points to a 19th century carver. The crab lock does appear to be original as do the strap hinges. Made out of solid Oak it stands on 17 7/8″ tall. It is 43″ wide and 18″ deep. The size allows for this chest to be used as a coffee table too. All in all, it is a nice piece and a bit hard to date. There is no way it is later than 1880 and it could have been made in the early 19th century. It is extremely solid and well built. American.
