We never know what we're
going to find. Imagine our delight when we removed the unoriginal cloth
lining from this little chest and found the maker's label. Turns out this
maker was also a saddle maker back in the mid-1800s in Amsterdam,
Netherlands. This chest is adorable with its beautifully grained pine,
nicely grooved hardwood staves, Jenny Lind-type brass buttons, rosettes; we
could go on and on. In our restoration we left just enough bruises to show
the age of this wonderful piece. With just a little work we had the original
lock working again. An antique key is provided. This is a small chest but
still offers enough lockable storage space to assume the life of a jewelry
box or the like.
It would look
wonderful on a bedroom dresser, chest of drawers or even on a shelf in the
foyer. We found it in the Village of Clemmons, NC or one of our local trunk
you like it as well as we do then call us now at 336-765-3998
or send us an email to
