Antique Travel Trunk with Drawers and Wardrobe
This is an old Travel Trunk. It is wood, covered with leather and has metal corners/ latches/ hinges/ feet/ rivets.... The wood is in good shape, but the leather has damage in several areas. The hinges are solid and work well, the latch for locking is broken and that is the only damaged wood that I saw. It looks like someone found it locked and pried it open. My plan was to cut the leather off of the back(leaving the riveted strips) and use it to repair the other spots. Then I would stain or paint the back side. I decided to see if anyone wanted it in it's original state before I did that. The inside has 4 drawers, an area for shoes, and a rack for hanging clothes that has 2 hangers and hooks for ties(I put bungies there) to hold the clothes in place. The hangers are "Multihangers" and there are instructions showing the ways to use them. They are on a stainless rack that swings out and locks back into place.
The drawers have leather pulls with one pull broken. All of the wood inside (except hangers) is covered with cloth similar to cheesecloth. This makes it smooth, I imagine to not snag or damage clothing. And wouldn't smell like a wood finish would do. There is a plaque that says PATENTED, but I couldn't find a maker or any other information.
There is a handle on the top, that is original. The metal feet on the bottom, to stand it for use, are solid and sturdy. It stands well, open and closed. I didn't find any missing or damaged metal corners or rivets. This was used by someone as a coffee table.
This trunk is solid and is good condition other than The Leather needing repair and the Latch/Lock area that is broken. Please look at my other items and ask questions if you have them.
