Think about the contents of your kitchen drawers right now. Are your drawers tidy? Do you know what is inside of each drawer? Most people tend to have one drawer in the kitchen that turns into a catch-all draw that is filled with all kinds of odds and ends. Some of the things are a complete mystery as to their purpose or function. Do you have just one of these junk drawers or are all of your drawers disorganized?
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.
Blanket chests with inlay designs are fewer than the more popular painted designs consisting mainly of hex designs. This is probably because creating the sulfur inlay style involves carving into the wood chests in a precise manner, which raises the difficulty factor.
