Hope chest furniture can be used as coffee tables, side boards, entryway sideboards, end tables, buffet tables and as an extra cozy seating area. The extra storage that they provide is a plus since many people reside in smaller living areas than what they would prefer. Added to their ability to double as a storage unit along the top area used as a much needed space, blanket chests give every home warmth and a welcoming atmosphere with styling dating back to the 1700's and 1800's. This 'ageless' styling in a huge reason that blanket storage chests retain their standing as one of the most favored types of furniture.
Along with the sulfur inlay used in their beautiful designs, ivory, shell, contrasting colored wood and bone were additional materials placed into the wood chiseled incisions. Many of the blanket chests crafted in Pennsylvania by German immigrants were artfully inlaid with leaf and floral designs flowing out from vases. The vases would have been created out of one of the additional materials.Sulfur inlay was also used to create string inlay and inlaid keyhole escutcheon in geometric patterns as an additional design element. This inlay was very fine in detail so that all of the designs created were very sophisticated in appearance.
Now, start putting your tools back in the kit, into the most appropriate compartment. A particular tool may suit more than one compartment - it doesnt really matter which compartment that you file it under as long as you can find it when you need it.
Pennsylvania was the area where many German immigrants chose to live. These immigrants were known as the Pennsylvania Dutch and their communities consisted of the Amish and the Mennonites, the plain people, and the Lutherans, along with other reformed religious groups, the fancy people. These groups of people had very skilled wood craftsmen who made wonderful furniture pieces such as the blanket chest, also known as the hope chest.
