One of my favorite family treasures is one I've had for a very long time. It belonged to my Dad's Mom and
he gave it to me when I was a child.
This small cedar chest!
I've kept my 'treasures' in this treasure for many years. It's been refinished by my Dad once but
it needs some tender loving care once again.
It is small and would be called child size I think.
25" long, 10" deep and 12" wide
I can't find a makers mark but Dad's
Mom wrote on the lid of the chest.
I love that she wrote her name in cursive
I have two of her hankies
I tried to find some info online and did find a company called Farley & Loetscher from Dubuque, Iowa that made cedar chests. She was from Dubuque, Iowa so it seems likely this chest was made by this company.
It's not worth tons of money, but it is priceless to me! This will be passed on to Miss Rosemary one day!
