"Hojd" Trunk with Iron and Heart Detail
Rustic and rugged, this vintage folklore Höjd trunk offers distinctive style and makes an elegant and durable storage option as well as a conversation piece. Features original hand-wrought iron handles and edging and super-charming heart detail. Though we don't know it's age for sure, we would guess it's from the 1800s, based on materials and styling.
Swedish "kista" trunks were once given as a gift to a marrying couple and would be filled with all the necessities for married life, such as special linens, family keepsakes, and so on. Often you'll find them hand-painted with both the date and the initials of the betrothed couple.
