This is a stunningly rare antique authentic handmade salesman sample miniature travel domed top trunk. It is a very small model made by hand to be able to easily transport from potential client to client for sales rather than carrying a heavy, large, original sized trunk. It is beautifully made with an abundance of nice detailing and many different materials.
It is made from wood, iron, leather, canvas, and linen. It has lonely metal decorative dogs on the front done in high relief and have dangling rings from their mouthes.
There is a nice handmade locking mechanism on the front but does not have a key. The inside is nicely lined but would have had a couple more pieces and more of the purple lining. It also has a linen piece on the side to hold the box opened. It is missing the handle part on the sides but still has the mounts so can easily be replaced. It measures 12 inches long by 9 inches tall by 7 3/4 inches wide.
It is in nice antique condition and has normal ware from age. Which will be a charge of 7% due to New Jersey state law. Please make sure to look at all pictures very closely before purchasing, as most pieces in my shop are non refundable. Most items are antique or vintage and could have usual ware from age.If there is anything you are unsure about feel free to ask, i will be happy to answer any questions Thank you for visiting and hope to see you again real soon!!!
