Description:

Early Black-painted Ball-foot Blanket Chest, probably Massachusetts, early 18th century, the molded lift top above a well, and two thumb-molded drawers below, old black paint over earlier red, ht. 43, case wd. 38 1/2, case dp. 18 in.
The Marge Staufer Americana Collection
Estimate $3,000-5,000

The feet are made in two halves, and appear to be old replacements. The surface is a dry black paint over earlier red, with a good amount of wear. There are shrinkage cracks, small repairs, and overall wear commensurate with age.
