Michigan schrank

I told you that I would show it off, so here it is...the Bleicher family schrank from Washtenaw County, Michigan, circa 1835.




Victorian oak graining over original blue (someday I may have it cleaned down to that blue, but not now). That part of Michigan saw much German settlement in the 2nd quarter of the 19th century. I was fortunate enough to purchase this right out of the family by way of Eric and Gary at The Chelsea Collection.
