  • Description
    Blanket Chest Philadelphia, 1740-1765
    Walnut; tulip poplar back board drawer sides and large drawer bottoms, white cedar small drawer bottoms, maple small drawer fronts and lower rail inside the case, oak leg blocks, probably ash till.
    Dimensions: 30-3/4 x 50-1/4 x 22-1/2

    This seemingly simple walnut blanket chest is a veritable sampler of fine 18th-century cabinetry. The utilitarian form is typically associated with non-urban furniture makers and with Pennsylvania German furniture. However, this example is clearly Anglican in its design, and inspection shows it to be urban in its construction, based on the assumption that the best craftsmanship was practiced in cities—in Philadelphia in this instance.
