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).
