This is an Antique 16 Child's / Doll Wooden Dome Top Trunk. The trunk is an estate item.
We were not able to get any specific provenance for it. The trunk is beautifully made and finished, and the antique black metal hardware enhances the appeal.The trunk has a removable tray as seen. Trunk measures about 16" wide x 9 3/4" deep. The height to the center of the domed / humped lid is 10 1/4", and the height to each of the four corners is 9". The trunk weighs just under six lbs. This beautiful antique trunk would be a wonderful addition to your home decor. It would also be great used open to display a collection of dolls and / or bears. We also have a wide assortment of antique and vintage wooden ware and desktop items. The trunk is a primitive piece with attendant variations in condition. It is overall in good condition with the following issues to be noted. As found, the metal hasp on from is broke off as seen circled in blue on a closeup photo. The pin is missing from one of the hinges on the back. To support and stabilize the lid, I cut the pointed end off of a small box nail and used it as temporary replacement for the missing pin. I left the head on nail which will facilitate removing the nail to replace it with an appropriate pin. If you plan to use the trunk for display and do not plan to frequently open and close it, you may decide that the simple repair I made with the nail will suffice. On the inside, a length of fabric cord was previously in use to limit the travel of the lid, preventing it from opening too far.
As found, the cord has been cut, and a remnant is attached to the lid and the base of the trunk, respectively. You may opt to leave this as found, or add a replacement cord or chain.One aspect of the construction involved the use of small nails / brads to secure the bent wood slated of the lid. There are several instances of crack marks across the lid, originating at several of the heads of the brads.
An example of a couple of instances of this is shown in a closeup photo with the extents indicated in blue.
