The front of the trunk has two latches and a lock in the center. Unfortunately we do not have a key for the lock. On the top half of the front, sides and midsection of the lid is tin and features an intricate floral pattern in a dark red-brown color that sits against a dark yellow background.There are small floral medallions on the front and top of the lid. The lid easily opens and closes.
Interior of the trunk has a paper overly with a colorful picture on the underside of the lid. The picture is of two cattle pulling a plow with a farmer at the back of the plow.
The interior of the base has a removable top tray that is divided into 2 different compartments. Under the tray is a large open compartment. The trunk is solid and sits evenly. Guaranteed to be antique and all original.
This neat trunk would make a great addition to any general antique or steamer trunk collection! Great to use for a period film or play! One handle is missing and the leather tag on the front edge is also missing. There is a small split on one of the wooden trim pieces on the top of the lid. Some of the metal lid trim is bent on the back.Some of the tin is torn and bent along the front edge of the trunk, where the lid meets the base, however it is covered by the lid when closed. Some tearing of the interior paper overlay on the side edge of the tray and front wall of the base. Typical wear from age and use. Overall in VERY GOOD condition for its age. Please refer to the photos for the absolute best details. Measures 33" wide, 16 1/2" deep and 20 3/4 tall. Please take a look at our photos and feel free to message us with any questions.
