Antique Primitive Stagecoach Rustic Wood Trunk Rounded Top Original Hardware 1700s. Beautiful rustic trunk made in the 18th century.
In my extensive research, I could only find one other that was similar in regards to style, date of creation, and hardware. I've attached 2 pictures of the other trunk at the end of the pictures for your review and comparison. This trunk is well aged and has the patina to show. It has a rounded top with hardware attached.
It has beautiful dove-tail notching commensurate with its age. The hardware is made of forged iron. There is hardware like this throughout the trunk with hand-cut nails attaching it to the wood. The metal is'hammered' but I believe it's because everything was hand done.
This is one of the oldest pieces I own. It appears to be from the 1700's. The most notable item to mention would be the break in wood on the top of the trunk.
It doesnt affect the structure and in my opinion, for it to have survived this long is a hallmark to its well-made construction and only adds to its charming character. I believe the wood is pine because in some places it is lighter under the patina. It could be be stripped and cleaned and varnished. Ive decided to leave it in its original found condition and leave it up to the new owner. This listing is for the trunk only, not the items within the trunk.
See all pictures since they make up an important part of the description. Measurements Approx: length 34.5 x width15.5 x height 16.5. It could be more or less depending on location.
