This is a very old wooden miniature blanket chest. The corners have hand cut dovetails. This is made out of pine. Taking the wood it's made from, the skeleton key lock, and the hand cut dovetails, I believe, and so do many other antique dealer friends that this was made in the mid to late 1800's. (I favor late 1800's)
The very last photo in this listing I snapped first. I wanted to picture it alongside something that is pretty standard as a sofa is. Gives you a better idea of the size. While this is a "mini" chest, it's still rather large. It measures 19 1/2" wide, 11 1/2" front to back, and sits 13 1/4" tall.It is a "footed" chest.
Happy to ship for exact costs if you need that. If you're interested, my phone # is listed, but I have extremely poor service where I live, line is pure static! You can try that if you prefer, but really, you'll have an easier time if you just message me through Craigslist. I don't have a cell phone.
Thank you for taking a look....
