Hope Chest

Hope Chest

Inside the chest is a removable hand-dovetailed tray. The tray and chest bottom are lined with aromatic cedar to keep wool blankets and sweaters moth free. On chests of this type from the 17th and 18th Centuries, the inside of the lid is often carved with the initials of the owner.
