Painted Dower Chest
Painted Dower Chest Inscribed, Johannes, Boffert, 1837, Pennsylvania. Poplar, polychrome paint decoration. In a wonderful state of preservation, original paint and original glass pulls, some areas of wear, replaced hinges. This is a beautifully simple, understated piece, well constructed with all dovetailed joints. It retains a dry, untouched surface with soft colors that add to its overall appeal.
