Dowry chest In many parts of the world, gifts passed to a newly formed household for the new bride, the dowry, often set the tone for a marriage. Often in times past, these goods were packed into a chest. Traditionally made of wood , they were also decorated as richly as means would allow. They became a status symbol when the bride arrived at her new home. Across the Middle East, where houses were traditionally sparsely furnished, such a dowry chest would often be placed in the woman’s area, where it could continue to announce its status and serve as an item of practical furniture.
