That Article of Household Furniture Peculiar to Earlier Days in the South: Sugar Chests in Middle Tennessee and Central Kentucky, 1800-1835

Record #:
During the first third of the nineteenth century, the sugar chest was a common piece of furniture among people of the upper and upper-middle class in parts of Tennessee and Kentucky. Sugar was safeguarded due to its high cost, relative scarcity and importance in entertainment customs. Sugar chests were also used in North Carolina, many of which were produced by John C. Burgner of Waynesville.
