This is a stunningly rare antique 19th century handmade salesman sample miniature travel trunk. It is a very small model made by hand to be able to easily transport from potential client to client for sales rather than carrying a heavy, large, original sized trunk.It is beautifully made with an abundance of nice detailing and many different materials. It is made from wood, iron, and brass. There is a nice brass locking mechanism on the front which works wonderfully and does have a key. It also has two working iron locks on each side. The piece has lovely iron corners with moon/star embossed riveted metal wrapping the box. It is also topped with a solid brass handle.
It measures 15 3/4 inches long by 10 inches wide by 10 1/2 inches tall and has acquired a great patina from age. It is in nice antique condition and has normal ware. There are two corner pieces missing on the bottom front. Which will be a charge of 7% due to New Jersey state law. Please make sure to look at all pictures very closely before purchasing, as most pieces in my shop are non refundable.
Most items are antique or vintage and could have usual ware from age.
