" One of the top lots of the sale is certain to be a finely, decorated blanket chest attributed to Johannes Rank of Dauphin (now Lebanon) County, Pennsylvania. Dated 1791, the poplar case is adorned with its original blue paint decoration and three tombstones, each with pots of flowers.  Though similar to the work of other members of the Rank-Selzer families of makers and decorators, this chest is most closely related to the signed chests of Johannes Rank and carries an estimate of $ 16,000-22,000.  "
