Trunk / Chest     Exhibit 2
     {1780s to 1850s}

     This is another example of a trunk or chest. The chest at one time had been painted a light, yellowish tan color, which has faded into a pleasing buttery color. Images below show the dovetail technique of connecting the side boards together. And the last image shows the legs which are original to the piece.
