Antiques, Fine Art & Collectibles. Antique Leather Wood Overland Trunk 1860s Western Travel Luggage Initialed A L. DESCRIPTION Antique leather covered wooden trunk. Dating to around the civil war era this flat top wooden trunk which is covered in leather is edged with metal strips and has a metal base.
The two locking clasps are still present but unfortunately the lock itself is long gone. The inside is decorated with period floral designs to cover the unsightly nails which hold the reinforcing wood brackets in place. This functional piece of luggage is in exceptional condition for its age as it dates to around 1850s/60s and it has the aesthetic quality rarely seen in modern piece. This would make a great linen trunk, coffee table or as a functional antique trunk. Marked: A L I recently acquired this piece of luggage from an antique dealers estate in Beverly Hills.
MEASUREMENTS Antique leather covered trunk measures 25.5" long by 14.5" wide by 16.5 deep and weighs 35lb 6oz. CONDITION In good sturdy condition with wear and tear commensurate with age and use, missing its locking mechanism (please see all pictures as they form part of the condition description).
