These Early American Hope Chests were not made with cedar on the inside. Cedar linings and bottoms are the additions of present day craftsmen to their Blanket Chests. This is a favorite feature among buyers since cedar eliminates insect pests and releases a wonderful aroma every time the lid is opened. This fresh smell can be rejuvenated by simply roughing the cedar with small grit sandpaper.
As the number of trunks and chests available has been rising in the past few years, the prices have also been falling simultaneously. Some of these cost less than 100, whereas the truly fancy ones can go up to a couple of thousand pounds. The type of material used, the additional features of the trunks, the amount of detailing on the chests - all these are factors that determine the total cost of the trunk. A wooden trunk built with inlay work will cost much more than a steel trunk built with casters and simpler locks.
Blanket chests are one type of furniture that is worth being made well. They are handcrafted wooden chests passed from one generation to the next which families fill with their heirloom treasures. The blanket chest, also known as a hope chest or dowry chest, has retained its sentimental value in our society as a family heirloom due to its beauty and fine craftsmanship. Many homes also use these versatile blanket chests for many different types of storage, depending upon the room in which they are placed.
