I love that this is still functional as storage and décor. Take a look at the images it has everything. Note the hump on the top of the trunk, from my research it was made this way so that other luggage could not be placed on top of it. Yet another indication of the quality of this piece. I have included an image of the original makers metal label/tag.
This antique travel wardrobe steamer trunk , features four fully functional drawers with a solid metal bar that fits into one drawer and through the handles to keep them all in place. The bar where you would hang your clothes and the detachable box at the bottom made for shoes, jewelry, papers, you decide complete as well.
There is obvious wear on the outside of the trunk, but we expect that and it adds to the antique charm of this piece. Great to use as a coffee table, a wardrobe for clothes/storage or repurpose into something special just for your home. The wardrobe trunk became popular during the Industrial Revolution.
This trunk has its original hangers for dresses, suits and coats, four drawers and original hardware. Large brass lock is no longer functioning.An overall amazing piece of Industrial Revolution ingenuity and craftsmanship.
