Seller: neiljfinn (471) 100%, Location: Leicester, Ships to: Free Local Pickup, Item: 302150172532 This is a gorgeous original antique Victorian pine blanket box. It has hand cut dovetail joints and original wrought iron hinges. There is an intricate carved plinth and surround to the lid. Inside it has a candle box with lid and two secret drawers below this (see photos). The chest is very clean inside and out. It has been freshly sanded and waxed with natural beeswax. It is useful size and ideal for storing bedding or anything really and would look great in a bedroom, hallway or living room as a coffee table. Dimensions are: 93cm wide (36.5 inches) x 47cm deep (18.5 inches) x 53cm high (21 inches). The chest is well built and very solid, there are a few signs of age and use as would be expected of any piece of antique furniture that is over 100 years old. There are some old woodworm holes in the plinth, as shown in the detail photo. This is long dead but has been treated as a matter of course during the recent renovation. The trim around the lid has some damage, as shown in the photos. I was initially going to replace this but realised that even with a little damage the original trim with its intricate moulding was much more attractive and authentic than any replacement. I had to remove the lock during the renovation but it is still with the chest and is included in the sale. There is no key with it however. The original lifting handles on either end of the chest are missing, I have found a replacement pair which although modern are a good copy of the traditional style handles and are a good match (see photo). I haven't fitted these yet but will do if the winning bidder would like them fitted (you may prefer it without handles so the option is there!). Free delivery within 10 miles of LE5 5DG is included in the final price, if required or collection is welcome. I may be able to deliver within 20 miles of LE5 5DG for an agreed price to cover fuel, email me with your postcode before the auction end for a delivery quotation. Please feel free to ask any questions. Viewings are welcome. Cash on collection/delivery is preferred but paypal is acceptable. Product Type: Chests, Original/Reproduction: Original, Style: Victorian, Age: 1800-1899, Material: Pine
