    I would like to say very little and welcome comments. I am hoping the best because I found this piece for an outrageously good price. As far as I can see there are some fixes, but most of it looks good. I will include another posting for some detail shots.

    Photo 1: Front view of blanket chest

    Photo 2: Side view of blanket chest

    Photo 3: View of the back. Notice the second board on the bottom. I do not believe this is original.

    Photo 4: View of the blanket chest opened from the top. It is held together, quite loosely, by snipe hinges. One is original, the left one is half original.

    More pictures to come.

      thank you surfdubb, agram, and jscott for the kind words. jscott, I've never heard of a sugar chest before but I will certainly do some research. These are typically referred to as: Six Boards
