This is absolutely the SWEETEST toy chest that a Child could have! It has beautiful handpainted pictures of a garden scene where a little girl is watering with her watering pail her happy sunflowers are dancing, the sun shining and smiling above them. Over hanging is a beautiful birdhouse hung on a vine all inside of a fence.

The caricatures are happy and appear to be dancing and enjoying the day. This is a handmade piece and there are scratches about it. I do not feel that they take away from the piece rather enhance it for its love and attention it received from the child or children who owned it before.

The caricatures are similar to those of early cartoons and are adorable. The wood is cedar and it has a chain to hold the box open. There are handcarved groves for carring the box on either side. As you can see by the pictures it is ornate in that there are large buttons on either side of the top of the box down toward the front of the chest. The paint colors are black and red.

The Box measures

28" L x 14" W x 13 H

It is heavy, sturdy and footed. It appears that some screws or nails have been replaced over the years but the majority remain in tact. Who wouldn't want to keep this in good condition.

I did not clean the chest and I do not out of respect for collectors. I would not want to damage the chest in any way that would take away from its value should the potential buyer/collector wish to have it restored.

This item is brought to you via a North Texas Estate Sale, is vintage, pre-owned and is sold as such.
