LINEN CHEST

This was used as a press for articles of linen such as napkins and tablecloths. Some presses were made to be clamped to a table top or chest of drawers, while others such as this example had their own stand and storage drawer. It would probably have been used by a large and wealthy household.

Mid 19th century.
