The Dower Chest, better known as a Hope Chest or Blanket Chest in present time, is referred to by the Pennsylvania Dutch as Ausschteier Kischt. This piece of furniture is the most cherished and most representative of the Germanic Immigrants who came to live in Pennsylvania during the late 17th, 18th and 19th Centuries.Young girls between the ages of eight to ten were given Hope Chests inscribed with their names and usually the date of presentation. This storage chest was filled with household items that the girl made, was given or purchased in anticipation of her future marriage. On her wedding day, this completely filled Hope Chest was proudly placed in the "Wedding Wagon" to be taken to her new home. Items would have included blankets, bed linens, baby clothes, quilts and some family heirlooms.
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.
