This is an extremely rare antique handmade 18th century Folk Art leather wrapped wooden dome top trunk.

They are very ornate, well made, and have acquired a lovely patina from age.
It also has gorgeous hand wrought iron handles which pivot on iron mounts. The dome topped lid opened with handmade original iron hinges in the backside. The inside is lined with a beautiful textiled linen as well as the backside. The linen was added a bit later in the mid to late 19th century.The trunk is overall in very nice antique condition and displays extremely well. It measures 19 inches long by 12 inches back to front by 10 1/2 inches tall.
It has normal ware and missing just a couple bronze tacts. Refer to all photos, extremely rare piece.
