Cavalier or Lane?

We all grew up with Lane but has anyone ever heard of Cavalier? This Tennessee Furniture Co. manufactured this cedar chest and dubbed it the cadillac of cedar chests. From the 1920's to perhaps the 1960's it was the hope chest of many a young lady. A gift from the parents at fourteen so she could start storing her dreams. Our chest that came to us today is early 1940's because of the brass medallion and paper labels inside the chest. Regardless, it is such a beautiful concept.
