Fabulous wood trunk, hard to find with wood slats on all sides & lovely camel dome hump lid make this early trunk very interesting. Dating to the mid 1800's era this trunk has much of the original parts including the leather handles which are in great condition! The lock and double front clasp closures are present, sorry we did not find a key at the estate.
This is the perfect project for someone looking for a trunk to refinish or just wax and use as you see it here. The interior has a compartment in the domed lid which still retains the original paper covering.The bottom has the original metal rollers in each of the four corners. This piece weighs about 60lbs. 32-1/2" wide x 20" x 26 highest this beauty is a rare find with the multi slat exterior. Cleaned up these slat trunks sell for thousands of dollars at antique shops and online stores. Estate find, antique trunk that is very sturdy! CONDITION: as shown in the photos I have taken pictures of every side, inside and out for your viewing pleasure. There are normal dings, wood chips & scratches from use over the years keep in mind this was originally a travel trunk that spent its life on stage coaches, left out in rough weather, used for almost 145 years and it still looks pretty good! The exterior underneath panel is metal that has light surface rust from weather but there is no rot or rust outs!
