I love this little piece. It is a 19th century dovetailed paint decorated Miniature blanket chest. Not sure if it was a child's or doll piece. Original brass handles and bun feet. Marbleized paint decoration on lid and base trim, white ground with central motto which reads "Be ye to others kind and true As you'd have other be to you, And neither say nor do to them What'eer you would not take again". Flanked by the makers or child's (I assume) initials "P R". Overall very good condition with just minor normal wear---interior is good with no odor. Approximately 12"h. x 18-1/2"w. x 10-1/2"d. Great piece with charming message.
