The design styles, dimensions and construction types differ among these Hope Chests which shows that the craftsmen did not copy each others work. The foot design changes from Dower Chest to Dower Chest with a large variety of bracket feet, rounded ball feet or no feet at all. Some Hope Chests had two or three drawers along the bottom, while others had none. Many Blanket Chests had inlay designs or special painted designs.
Cinnamon of either kind is the bark of the tree. The bark is peeled off and dried, curling into what are known as quills or ground into powder. This is where the similarity ends. Cassia quills are very thick curls, strong and sometimes even hard to break. It has a stronger taste, warmer and more potent. There is some very good quality cassia to be found these days, such as Korintje AA. A lovely spice to perk up anything you commonly make with cinnamon here.
Shaker Style furniture and hope chests have been crafted in America for the last 200 years. This furniture style is the end result of the strict Shaker religion viewpoint that that all things were to be created for maximum utilitarian efficiency. Added embellishments were thought to be entirely unnecessary and a wrongful expenditure. This is why the Shaker Style form has simple lines and no decorative elements such as inlay work, added raised wood designs or engraved designs that were common among other Early American hope chest styles. Only on a few furniture pieces is there a little bit of beaded work design. The same reasoning went into why the legs were always straight and without any curves. In addition, Shaker furniture is usually stained rather than painted in holding with this viewpoint.
