I treasure this little piece of family history. My grandmother’s uncle made her this beautiful lunch box in 1910 either in Hudiksvall or Sigtuna, Sweden. It was given to me when I was living in Sweden as a young child and I have used it ever since to contain treasures and trinkets. It now contains the last remnants of my daughter‘s baby blanket, the infamous “tutta.” The design is genius, a simple snap and lock lid.
