Item: Wooden Chest/Trunk
Construction: Walnut with Brass hardware
Dimensions: 48” x 23” x 25”
Details: We know it is a mule chest and not a blanket chest because of the addition of drawers to store slippers called "mules” by the colonists, as well as the increase in height from the blanket chest height. It is taller than a blanket chest would have been. If it were English it more than likely would have an adorned top that would be carved. The American version had a plain flat top so that it could be utilized as additional seating in the home because only the wealthy had chairs.
Condition: Very Good, some wear which is consistent with age.
