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.
Imported fine wood does create a wonderful look for hope chests. It gives blanket chest furniture a unique quality. Burl wood is also a great choice if you are looking for a special look. This type of fine wood is not imported but has the wonderful feature of no two pieces of furniture ever appearing the same since the wood grain in each wood plank is extremely different from the next. Burl wood also has a 'glowing' finished look. It is normally used as a veneer finish since it is found only in smaller portions.
Before buying a chest of drawers, you must first of all, consider the spaces available where it is suppose to be kept. A size that fits the space and fulfils your storage requirement must be selected. Also, one must not forget the doors and entry ways. A chest of drawer must be placed in such a way that the door and drawers do not collide while opening as this would damage the finish and cause scratches on both the entry door and surface of the drawers. Also, make sure that chest is kept away from any heat or water source as both water and heat reduces the life of the wooden furniture.
