Sweet Little Paint Decorated Case of Drawers

New England, ca. early 19th century. White pine. Beautifully painted functional art. Each drawer painted mustard-yellow with black numbers and bordering, all set within a robins egg blue case, the lettering stylishly rendered by a skilled artist. Darkened over-varnish has scattered wear, revealing brighter paint underneath. Case and drawers are held by unheaded cut nails. Each drawer centered by original brass pulls with hand-cut iron threads. Underside of case is unpainted, while the top has blue paint covering about half the surface, indicating that the back half was too high to be seen, or intended to be set within a fixture. Case is just 20 1/2 inches long x 2 3/4 tall x 4 deep. Drawers vary in width from 3 1/2 inches to 3 3/4. Maybe be positioned almost anywhere on a fireplace mantel, counter, chest, sill, shelf.
