Rare Child Size 19th C. Sea Captain’s Chest Nice

Wonderful fresh Maine fine, from a seacoast estate, this wonderful “child size” Sea Captain’s chest, with amazing detail to attention. Tight “Dovetailed” ends on all four corners, small square & round nails, and early hemp rope handles attached to two wooden escutcheons. It has some kind of old dry finish, that appears to be the original darkened patina. The chest measures 14 3/4” long, stands 6 1/2” tall, and is about 8” wide at the base. No chips, cracks, or issues to this well-kept and lovingly made small Sea Captain's chest, for someone’s lucky child. I can see this box used to hold doll clothes, small books, tools, or any assortment of special primitives. I have never seen one like this, and it is really a nice item to stack with other boxes, as the attached lid surface is flat. Would look great displayed anywhere! $145 + shipping
