Cedar Blanket Chests

Although they are referred to as cedar chests, the exterior is often made of another type of wood such as oak or maple, while the interior is the cedar part. The reason for this is that cedar has properties that repels insects such as moths, keeping whatever valuables you are storing safe from being gnawed or damaged.

You can buy cedar blanket boxes as brand new recreations that have been recently manufactured but have been made to look aged. Or you can do some extra hard digging and unearth a genuine vintage cedar blanket chest for sale.

Even the simple looking cedar blanket boxes usually have some kind of fancy woodwork that has gone into it. There are fine lines, designs and etch work that you might find on one side or another. The buckles, hinges or straps that sometimes adorn these chests also add to the fancy appeal of them.

Although blanket chests started out originally as travelling boxes designed to be hardwearing against the rough knocks of long journeys they are also designed with some extremely artistic work. They are large enough to hold quite a lot of goods, not surprising seeing as their original use was to carry a lot of clothes for journeys that would last a good many months.
