This is an awesome antique small wooden trunk with newspaper lining from 1883. The piece is made of wood.
It is covered with what looks to be period era paper which has been painted with a grain and banding design covering the trunk. The trunk measures 23 3/4" long x 12" deep x about 12 high to the top of the dome. The piece is in aged condition with wear around the edges. The wood has a ridge on top and there are age cracks on the sides of the top. One crack goes into the top approx.
It does not seem to be rotted under the paper. The inside smells a bit musty but not extreme. Please let me know if you need any additional information.
