Simple Sussex garden trugs caught Queen Victoria's eye one day a hundred and fifty years ago, as she strolled through the Crystal Palace in London. Awarded a Royal Warrant, the baskets are still crafted the same way today—and useful for a variety of garden chores. Above: Oxford-based Objects of Use carries handmade trugs fastened with brass pins; contact the shop directly for ordering information. Above: Handcrafted from chestnut and willow, the Original Sussex Trug is £78 at Labour and Wait. For an assortment of traditional trugs—with bark, stripped, or painted—visit Sussex Trugs . Above: The British garden shop Burgon and Ball offers a Medium Natural Wooden Trug ; £16.95. (N.B.: We also recently admired their Children's Natural Wood Trug , £9.95.)
