Skokloster Castle

Skokloster Castle
Skoklosters, Sweden

One could easily think that Skokloster is overflowing with things from its first owner, Count Carl Gustav Wrangel’s age, that war booty and precious luxury items are stacked to the ceiling in every room. But it is not that simple. There are, of course, many objects from Wrangel and his period, but historic documentation is lacking in many cases and we cannot always be sure of the provenance of the objects. Among the older objects in the house there are, however, some of high quality that fit very well into a princely environment like Wrangel’s.
