Offering a beautiful small antique steamer trunk. It measures 28" wide, 15" deep and 18 tall (outer dimensions). The tin, wood and hardware components of this trunk are all in great shape. The trunk is solid and ready for use as is.Through the center of the front, lid, back and the sides, the tin panel is embossed with an ornate embossed grape vine design with bright black paint. This pattern provides texture, and retains its paint. The front of the lid has two working latches to secure the lid and a lockable latch in the center, but no key. The leather handle on each side of the trunk are tight and in solid condition but one is flaking. The lid easily opens and closes nicely.
Interior is clean, lined with paper (its a wood texture pattern paper) that is clean, intact and in great shape, with a colorful graphic on the underside of the lid, and with some separation on corners and edges. There is some paint loss and light oxidation on the solid black painted tin near the corners. The grape vine pattern is still sharp and has no paint loss. The tray interior tray was lost long ago. The bottom appears to have replacement slats and original wheels.Please refer to the photos for the absolute best details. It could date to the 1880s. It would make a great storage unit for any room in your home. We have several in our house where we store throws/pillows and photos/collections. It would make a great addition to any general antique or steamer trunk collection! Great to use for a period film or play as well! We acquired this recently at an estate sale and cleaned the wood with lemon oil, conditioned the leather, cleaned the tin with a general household cleaner and then applied a light household oil to release any additional grime and protect from further oxidation.
