Schoharie County are known for their bright and exuberant patterns on blue background and have always been highly desirable for folk art collectors. A dower chest in excellent condition decorated with an overflowing urn of flowers primarily in reds and yellows on the blue ground. A very detailed border surrounds the floral panels and the initials “M” and “F” for the intended owner flank the urn. This fine example survives in its original paint.
