X 20 D at the trunk. It's a beautiful mustard color on the outside with the top and 3 front sides painted. The back and bottom are not painted. The sides have smoke painting to them as you can see in the pictures. It's very pretty and this was a common technique in the late 1800's and early 1900's.
It has a hinged lid as you can see in the pictures. The hinges are large and heavy, and may not be original, we don't know.
Inside it's very clean and has a little till on the left side with the hinged lid as you can see in the pictures. There is a lock and latch but we don't have the key for it. On the front it's very clean, with less obvious smoke painting.The feet are a bit like "turnip feet" which was very popular in the late 17th century and also in the mid 19th century. We anticipate this is from the mid-1800's. It has very nice dovetailing as you can see at the corners. It also has large square nails in the rim of the breadboard-style top, as you can see in the close-up pictures. The top is notably more worn with some scratches and stable cracks as you can see. All in all it's in very good condition for its age. Please look closely at the pictures and you can see all of this. We regularly put up new items so check out our other items.
