  15. Oh,my, was this chest actually for sale? Surely not. I can't imagine anyone other than the hopelessly wealthy being able to afford such a piece of art.

  18. Beauty of a find. As some of the other readers are, I am a big fan of painted furniture also. Wonderful choice of colors the artist chose. An heirloom one would think!
