Here's an absolutely outstanding antique trunk for you. This is an authentic, 19th Century, Sinhalese trader's trunk originating from Sri Lanka. This large trunk measures approximately 23" x 24" x 45.
The trunk is made of heavy teak with hammered brass accents, a heavy brass latch & latch plate with numerous brass rivets patterned across the top and sides. The trunk has hand hammered hinges inside and two iron handles on either end. There is a candle tray on the right upper side of the interior.The trunk is well-used, as someone might expect from an item of this age. There is some visible damage to the corners, which you can see in the photos. However, the trunk is very sturdy and obviously, very attractive.
I'm confident that this incredible item will make for a very interesting addition to any collection. A superb piece of decor.
