Description from Archer Hard Goods

The Sussex Trug, invented by Thomas Smith of Herstmonceux in the 1820s, has become a widely recognized and greatly-loved icon of English gardening culture. Originally known as a “trog”, these vessels were an Anglo-Saxon device carved from solid wood and used to measure liquid and grains. The current trug is a direct descendent of Smith’s innovative design and is used primarily for transporting flowers, herbs or produce from the garden to the house. Faithful to the original Sussex design, this large trug was carefully crafted by hand using rare and beautiful myrtlewood and assembled using copper nails. We love using it for its intended purpose as a sturdy carryall, but we also use it as a tasteful way to display fruit or to store yarn and knitting needles when not in use.

  • Made in the USA.
  • Measures 20” x 11” x 10” (51cm x 28cm x 26cm)
  • Made from Myrtlewood and fastened with copper nails. Finished with food-safe mineral oil.
