Pennsylvania Document Box in Original Red Paint and Newspaper Lining

Circa 1840: Made of chestnut and poplar, this Pennsylvania document box in the form of a miniature blanket chest sports original red paint decoration, simple scalloped feet, square nail construction, and newspaper lining from the July 23, 1838 edition of the Philadelphia Messenger, a weekly publication begun in 1837. Measuring 8"H x 12 1/2"W x 8 1/2"D, this handsome country primitive chest has a fitted lid cased on all four sides, thus eliminating the need for hinges.
