Diminutive Blanket Chest, mid 19th century

This came from an old local Providence family whose residence is near Brown University.   The decedent was an admiral with a long Mayflower pedigree.   Lots of good stuff came out of this house sale and the picker who brought it to us knew it is a clean example of diminutive size with a nice arched profile.   It retains its early dark surface and interior divider. 

Height: 14 1/4 in. Width: 29 1/2 in. Depth: 15 1/4 in.
