An Antique Chest And It’s Story

Many years ago, I dealt with an antique dealer/friend who always had a list from me for her pickers.

You know, the days before eBay and the internet . . . Waaaay back when.

About 30 years ago, I had a list for the pickers that included a blanket chest.

I wanted to use that chest for a coffee table . . . one that had lots of character and imperfections

that would withstand the abuse of lots of teenage boys with their feet up.

Even though I only had one son, there were lots of his friends around.

I got a call one day saying a blanket chest just came into the shop and I had “first dibs!”
