Item specifics

Product Type:









Art Moderne, Regency, Romantic, Rustic, Shaker, Victorian

Blanket boxes have been around for hundreds of years. The average family living in Victorian England had no closet or chest of draws to keep clothes in. The blanket box was the single most utilitarian storage solution available in Victorian Britain.

I wanted a blanket box made with Victorian craftsmanship that looked as if it had just come out of the workshop. One that would last so that it would be my daughters toy box, as she grew older her blanket box and finally when she got her own place her first coffee table. 

The problem is of course that no one makes them anymore – so I started to make them myself. 

Each blanket box is treated as a new commission. We use only the finest seasoned redwood pine and hand cut each joint. The box is clamped into position and the glue is allowed to cure overnight to form a joint that is stronger than the actual wood.

The entire box is sanded repeatedly with different grades of paper to create a worn loved look. Hard edges are softened and a fine wax is applied to protect the wood.

Finally it is polished and cast iron swing handles and hinges are added.

This is traditional quality that you can still have today

Length 90cm, Height 50cm, Depth 50cm. Ships to UK mainland only.
