Cypress chests

Taming of the Shrew, [2.1.343-352]. Gremio. “First, as you know, my house within the city/ is richly furnished with plate and gold,/ basins and ewers to lave her dainty hands;/ My hangings all of Tyrian tapesty;/ In ivory coffers I have stuff’d my crowns;/ In cypress chests my arras counterpoints,/ Costly apparel, tents, and canopies,/ Fine linen, Turkey cusions boss’d with pearl,/ Valance of Venice gold in needlework,/ Pewter and brass, and all things that belongs/ To house or housekeeping.”
