Description: DECORATED BLANKET CHEST.
Soap Hollow, Somerset County, Pennsylvania, dated 1871, pine. Dovetailed box resting on bracket feet. Retains its original painted decoration, including stenciled flowers on a red ground. Initialed "JB" and dated "1871." Imperfections. 21"h. 37 3/4"w. 19"d.

The present chest is nearly identical to the "DB/1872" chest illustrated in Muller, Soap Hollow: The Furniture and Its Makers

, p. 66. The wreath at center is similar to the wreaths used by Jeremiah Stahl (see Muller, p. 40), thus he is a good candidate for the maker. Given the similar form and decoration and the same second initial, it would seem possible that this chest and the chest in Muller are from the same family.

Condition Report: Some paint wear and loss; the varnish has darkened, back feet have nailed repairs; lid molding is an older replacement and the base molding was re-colored black at that time (traces of green are eviden on the inside of the lid and in the worn areas of the base).


Regarding the shipping of firearms and or weapons: please be aware that many restrictions apply to the international shipment of firearms, antique or otherwise. Your winning bid will not be canceled, rescinded, or retracted due to an international shipping limitation. It is your responsibility to resolve shipping issues PRIOR to bidding in this (or any other) auction.
