A hope chest is a wooden chest or trunk that stores special items for a bride. This tradition came from arranged marriages from centuries ago where the groom’s family offered money to the bride and she, in turn, would come with a dowry of silverware, linens, and china in the chest. It was a symbol of the significance of the new marriage.

  • Capacity: 6.8 Cubic feet of storage to hold special items like diaries, family recipes and photos

Thank you so much for the cedar chest. I too was a little worried about ordering and paying for a chest sight unseen. However, it is so beautiful, amazing workmanship. I will cherish this piece of furniture for many years to come. Thank you Josh and team. Sincerely T. Collins

I really liked this website, (after looking at many dozens for a reproduction chest) and decided to place an order.

My order was for a chest stained with "Michael's Cherry," cedar lining and I added the personalized brass plaque. I also opted for the "Dutch Bird" motif on the front.

The chest arrived on the date promised, was extremely well packed during shipping, in excellent condition, and beautiful beyond words. It was everything I expected - and more!

It was flawless and I simply can't say enough good things about the chest. The customer service and Joshua were also helpful and couldn't have been better.

I would definitely recommend this company and their beautiful workmanship to anyone looking for fine hand-crafted furniture. My experience really deserves more than five stars!

My cedar chest arrived today.  It is all I thought it would be and so much more.  It arrived in perfect condition.  All I can say is that it is perfect.  It has been such a pleasant experience dealing with Joshua.  I can't say enough good things about this whole process.  It is not my nature to purchase anything sight unseen but I made this exception because I wanted something so special for my only granddaughter and this cedar chest looked like exactly what I wanted so I went with my gut and ordered this online.  I am so glad I did.

My Yorktown Reproduction Chest arrived and I am so happy with it. The chest is beautiful Cherry wood with Acres stain and even more beautiful then I had imagined it would be. The inside is fully cedar lined and I was so pleased with the scent. I was worried that it may be to strong, but it is just perfect. I chose the dovetail joints and the workmanship is exquisite. I wanted the chest to be larger then the standard large chest and Josh was so helpful with creating the size to fit the design. All my questions and concerns were immediately answered by Josh and I felt very secure with my order. I would not hesitate to shop with this company in the future. ~ Kathleen, CT

Our Yorktown Reproduction Cedar Chest is even more beautiful than we had imagined it would be. The web site was easy to use and very descriptive which helped us narrow our search. After placing the order we had some second thoughts about the stain color. After calling to discuss our concerns, we received color samples in the mail which made the selection easy. When we received the chest, the color was perfect. We are so happy with the chest and look forward to many years of enjoying its beauty.

Received our new Cherry Yorktown Hope Chest last week. The chest was packed with great care and protected the chest very well. As we expected, the fit and finish of the chest was exceptional. We were a little hesitant to order sight unseen, but can now say we are extremely happy with our purchase in all respects.
