6.500,00 kr

Pewter box with a brass rim by Nils Fougstedt. The lid is inscribed with the last verse of a poem by the poet Lars Wiwallius (1605-1669), called “Klago-Wijsa” (“Ballad of Lament”). The poem was written during a long period of imprisonment. The verse reads as follows:

“Giv glädje och tröst, låt lärkjan ej dö, låt leva sommarens svala! Hugsvala vart bröst på Sveriges ö, som nu mån sorgeligt tala! Giv sommar, giv blommer, giv gott grönt hö, låt göken ropa och gala!”

Translation:

“Give joy and solace, do not let the lark die, let live the swallow of summer! Give comfort to each heart on the island of Sweden, that speaks words of sorrow! Give summer, give flowers, give good green hay, let the cuckoo call out and crow!”
