The leather could use some conditioning and has faded in color on the sides, when compared to the top. All four sides of the trunk are decorated with leather. There is some wear to be found in places giving this piece some character, but overall still in good display condition as it sits now, as this piece is unique and little different than some of the other trunks you see out there. As for functionality, this piece opens and stays open on its own perfectly.
Both of the leather handles on the sides are present but non-functional. There is not a key to lock this piece. One of the front latches fits in place perfectly to hold the lid down, and the other latch is little bit off center so it doesn't fit perfect, and you can muscle it on there if you want... Not really a big deal whatsoever...
And surprisingly, your typical musty trunk smell in this piece really is not bad at all!! There is a little tiny bit of course, but not nearly anything close to the smell of most of the steamer trunks you will find! Trunk measures roughly 31" long, 18" deep, and 24 tall to the top of the dome. PLEASE TAKE A LOOK AT MY OTHER ITEMS FOR SALE, AND ADD ME TO YOUR FAVORITE SELLERS LIST!
