Declutter, organize, and tidy up the drawers in your kitchen, bedroom, bathroom, and garage. Don't forget the medicine cabinet too. You probably have a lot of drawers and cabinets in your home so don't get overwhelmed at the thought. Just start with the first one and keep going, even if it takes you several weeks to complete the job. It will be difficult at first, but the more you do, the easier it will become. As time goes on, you will find it gets easier to part with items you no longer use.
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.
The two common elements of these Hope Chests are the top closing lid and the dark wood staining or paint. Dark coloring was necessary for the design elements to stand out, especially for the inlaid motifs. Beautiful hardwoods of Walnut, Oak and Eastern Pine were mainly used in the construction of these finely crafted Blanket Chests during this early time period.
