An elegant wooden chest often used as a dresser or jewelry box. From necklaces to watches to pens, this is the case for your most precious accessories. It’s a design that digs deep into the origins of Gerstner, specifically into the history of our company’s founder.

The stylish Coopers Legacy chest is a tribute to the first Gerstner chests made in the early 1900s. Herman Gerstner, the father of company founder Harry Gerstner, was a cooper (barrel maker,) and made his living making whiskey barrels out of quarter-sawn white oak; the very same hardwood we use in building many of our chests today. In fact, Harry constructed his first chests from the “offal” (excess lumber) from the cooperage.

Drawing inspiration from the quarter-sawn white oak whiskey barrels, today we use precision routers instead of a drawknife to cut each drawer front from a solid piece of hardwood, which will not lose its shape with time, and we still add 107 years of Gerstner quality, craftsmanship and heritage into each piece.

Second Class Products
A “Factory Retouched” chest, often referred to as a “Second Class or 2nd Class” may have a slight blemish in the finish, a repaired glue joint or contain a piece of hardwood or veneer that has a minor defect – none of which are enough to affect the operation or durability of the chest itself. All “2nd Class” chests are shipped with a 30-day Satisfaction Guarantee from H. Gerstner & Sons factory in Dayton, Ohio. All 2nd Class items have been packaged for shipping and we do not track or note what was retouched on each individual chest.
