On offer is this good quality French bound steamer trunk circa 1900/1910. Perfect for a coffee table or at the end of the bed as a luggage rack because of its flat banded top. This steamer trunk has a nice atmosphere it has a good even colour and a warm feel about it. This very handsome antique French steamer trunk was made in France sometime at the beginning of the last century and would've been an expensive item of luggage when new. It is in original condition and has its original interior tray as well as it's original leather handles.
It is bound with wood and has brass headed pins and brass locks and fittings also the corners and trim are in vellum. These steam trunks are very desirable as coffee tables or at the end of the bed as a blanket box or in fact anywhere in the house as useful storage, this one is of good quality better than some but not as good as some of the very expensive ones it sits somewhere nicely in between. Some signs of good quality I should point out are the brass locks and fittings and the extra protection along the edges and the vellum on the.
It is finished in canvas which has then been painted and coach striped. It is in very good condition it is 100+ years old so obviously there are some signs of wear but there are no repairs or damage the interior is very clean apart from a slight mark on the very bottom but this is acceptable I think.
