The trunk is constructed with a single plank flat top, with brass-bound corners and reeded edge, above a joined, brass-bound box. The original lid retains its original brass hinges. The interior is clean, dry and practical and usable.

The sides incorporate what we believe to be are the original rope carrying handles. The trunk stands on its original reeded plinth base, resting on simple sledge rails, designed so that it could be dragged if necessary. The back of the trunk retains its original panels along with the original floor.Overall, this trunk boasts a lovely mellow, colour and patination, as well as traditional construction.
