The History of the Hope Chest

A Hope Chest in United States, also referred to as a Glory Box or Trousseau, is a beautiful hardwood storage piece that has a long history in the furniture world.  Shop our beautiful Hope Chests and find the perfect wedding gift, grad gift or a special place to store you bedroom quilts and linens!

Originally, Hope Chests were used to collect items of clothing or household linen by unmarried young women in anticipation of married life. The presentation of a Hope Chest was seen as a tradition coming-of-age rite in the 1950's, and typically viewed as the first step on the road to marriage.

Common Uses of Hope Chests Today

Today Hope chests are commonly used at bed ends, more often than not to store sheets, linens and blankets. They are a fine compliment to almost any bedroom furniture set. Believe it or not, they are also commonly used as alternatives to 

cheap plastic toy chests by parents seeking to maintain charm and grace in their living room or playrooms.

A cedar hope chest can also be a convenient way to store your winter clothing or shoes while providing a beautiful, lively scent to anything in the chest.  See our entire collection of Cedar Hope Chests and explore the wonder possibilities of incorporating a handcrafted Amish cedar chest into your decor!
