Luggage chests

Two of my favourite items are these luggage storage chests. We store wedding things in one and other infrequently used bits and bobs in the other. The look cool. What I really love about them is the personal history.

My mother was downsizing snd I was crawling through her loft. She wanted to bin them. After closer inspection I found an original luggage tag in old paper with our family name and location. Owned by my grandparents from an age where these were sensible cases to take on holiday. No idea how they got them to the station. They are impossible for one person to carry.
