Antique and Vintage Chests

Chest of drawers are one of the earliest forms of container for keeping clothing, papers, valuables, and other properties. It was the most essential piece of furniture in the house until the eighteenth century. Chests with smooth lids were also occasionally utilized as chairs or beds. Blanket chests are a type of box with a hinged top that can be used to store personal things. Several chests are prepared with locking devices or a metal band so that a lock can be secured.

A chest is made up of various materials such as wood, metal, and others. Chests back in time were mostly used for storage systems just like how today we use closets. Barely nailed end joints were rebuilt with dovetailed intersections; tops initially hinged plainly by iron nails or wooden pins driven through cleats tied to the top into the sides of the chest were renovated by hinges. Chests are extremely valuable because the materials used are qualitative and durable.

Unlike before where people used chests for storage purposes most of the chests today which are antique and vintage are kept in various collections instead of being used for storage. Antique chests of drawers, antique steamer trunks, and vintage trunks are highly trendy these days, and many individuals prefer collecting vintage objects more than ever before. Some chests are as well used for decoration purposes. Chests Various antique and vintage chests for sale can be found on various auctions. One of the best collections of chests online is available on Bidsquare. Chests at auction are some of the rare collections of extremely valuable items.
