Furniture styles are constantly changing due to the whims of society. Even so, there is one type of traditional furniture that has seen very little change over the centuries since so many people enjoy crafting and giving these pieces to loved ones. This is the Dower Chest, better known as a Dowry Chest, Hope Chest or Blanket Chest.
Hope chests were usually stained a dark brown or painted to enhance the engraving or other embellishments on the outside areas. The name of the person who received the blanket chest along with the date was inscribed on the outside or on the inside of the lid of these heirloom chests. Some blanket chests were made with drawers along the bottom in which to place an extra special item such as a wedding dress. Others were given a tray area in top that could be easily removed in which to place smaller items.
You can also use them in your bathroom to keep your toiletries clean and fresh and your towels can be kept away from dirt and dust. A well-designed chest of drawers can be placed in the kitchen to keep knives and other utensils in an organised way. Since it is an important furniture unit so you must not be in a hurry while shopping for a chest of drawers. They have sufficient amount of space to store all your belongings in a systematic manner and allows you to access the things with great ease.
I set the quills side by side and demonstrate the differences, first breaking a cassia quill, with the ensuing loud snap when it breaks. Then I show the cinnamon quill, layered together, and how very easily it breaks and crumbles. With the ground version of each side by side, I ask the class members to smell the two; first the cassia that is the most familiar, and then the cinnamon. The startled reactions when they realize exactly how big a difference exists between these two spices, is quite rewarding.
