A great example of a centuries old Northern European tradition! Brides boxes were a traditional gift a groom would make or have made to present to his bride for her most special possessions, such as her headdress and other small items from her trousseau. The boxes also were known to be part of a bride's dowry. Always colorful the decoration on the box we are offering is especially nice.
