A Tiger Maple Blanket Chest, Labeled "E.Swan", Stonington, CT, c.1780

This piece is historically meaningful as Swan’s brand comes with historical documentation relative to his life of which a copy of his “indenture” of apprenticeship accompanies this piece, and is quite detailed and tells a story of that time.  Robert Lionetti, grandson of the famous dealer John Walton, used this piece as part of a furniture presentation at Winterthur. The construction shows wood of unusual thickness and retains its original old dry finish.

Height: 36 n. Length: 37 in. Depth: 7 3/4in.
