This type of travel trunk are called a bomme, both the lid and the bottom has been carved out of a block of wood, in the same way as bowls. The bentwood sides are attached to the bottom part with metal bands. It is a rare piece and the largest bomme i have seen, it has two metal rings on lower part of back so it could be attached to a horse with ropes. Has a orange color typical of the area and green metal bands. In good condition, has some wormholes as most items from this area, but inside it has a sticker confirming it has been treated for this. Great size 26.5" wide, 17.5" tall and 15.5 deep, has a lock but not functioning but can easily be fixed by locksmith. Would go great in any collection of farm antiques from Norway, Sweden or Scandinavia as a whole. Easy to place because of size and a great way to show byers Norwegian heritage.
