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.
Sulfur when initially poured is bright yellow in color. This lead historians to do some research about the aging phenomena of the inlays. They found that the inlays changed their color to ivory when there was a particle size decrease of the sulfur used in these designs. This was caused by repeated climatic changes on the blanket chests over the course of 200 years, especially in an uncontrolled environment. This would also be why many of the hope chests found in historical collections decorated with sulfur inlay display some cracking and splitting of the sulfur.

The lingerie chest is a tall, narrow set of drawers that is ideal for an additional storage piece or for those who only require minimal storage. This piece commonly has seven small drawers stacked one on another, the seven drawers representing the days of the week. While the lingerie chest was designed to store undergarments and such, it can serve many other purposes as well. With its slender, space-saving design, the lingerie chest is ideal for rooms with limited space, such as dorm rooms and smaller bedrooms.
