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.
It won't do you much good to run out and buy new organizers if your current drawers are a cluttered mess. You have to undo your mess first or your new organizers will become out of control quickly. Make it a goal to declutter, organize, and make sense of your drawers. Work on them one at a time. Empty a drawer onto the table or into a box. Return the items that belong in the drawer and throw out what isn't useful. For items that are misplaced, put them in a holding box until a place opens up as you continue with your decluttering.
When people look at heirloom hope chest furniture, they look at the wonderful styling and the care that it took to create these fine furniture pieces. They also look at the type of wood that was used for the construction of these blanket chests. The better the quality of wood used equals a longer survival time for these fine wood chests which have battled the elements. Hope chests made a few centuries ago would have endured the year round temperature changes and the many changes in humidity levels since homes back then were not always well insulated. These homes may not have been evenly heated as they are now either.
