Sulfur Inlay


The design for this chest comes from a painted softwood dower chest possibly made in the Oley Valley (pictured on the left), PA in 1769. Sulfur inlay(featured on the right) was meant to imitate more expensive wood inlay by filling a chiseled groove with molten sulfur. Ours is a painted variation, meant to imitate the sulfur look. Our design was adapted from a sulfur inlaid chest made for Eva Dunckel on 19 April 1786 (original in the Metropolitan Museum of Art).
