This pine immigrant trunk was handcrafted around 1810. It has a dome shaped top and hand cut dovetailed joints. This chest is all original and nothing has been painted or veneered. It still has the original brown paint with black striping. It has wrought iron handles on each side and it has an iron bear trap lock and hinges.
The inside has a side area with a secret wooden drawer hidden under a shelf. It is about 35" L X 21.5"W X 22 H. When the lid is opened, there is a smell of old linens so this may have been used as a blanket chest.
