Many eighteenth-century Pennsylvania German furniture pieces, especially blanket chests, were decorated with sulfur inlay. This was done by first carving out a shallow decorative design into the wood chests using very sharp wood chisels. From there, molten sulfur was carefully poured into the incisions. This material, which was ivory-colored, was first mentioned in historical art literature in 1958.
The second most vital piece of furniture after bed in your bedroom is the chest of drawers. This essential furniture unit serves many purposes such as it can be used as a display area to place photos, trophies and other valuable items.

When people look at heirloom hope chest furniture, they look at the wonderful styling and the care that it took to create these fine furniture pieces. They also look at the type of wood that was used for the construction of these blanket chests. The better the quality of wood used equals a longer survival time for these fine wood chests which have battled the elements. Hope chests made a few centuries ago would have endured the year round temperature changes and the many changes in humidity levels since homes back then were not always well insulated. These homes may not have been evenly heated as they are now either.
Shaker Style furniture and hope chests are perceived by many to have a unique simple beauty in their design element. This is interesting since the Shaker community condemns creating beauty as a predetermined result.
