EARLY AAFA ANTIQUE DOLL TRUNK DOME TOP MINIATURE TRUNK HAND PAINTED SQUARE NAILS. Up for sale is this wonderful miniature antique wood steamer child's or doll trunk. The trunk has a painted dome top with painted accents on the front, sides and back. Perhaps this was a dowry trunk?
The trunk is a green color with red, white, black and other reddish accents. The lid is a round-top / dome-top. The lid's hinges are not original and were replaced at some point as you can see in the pictures. There is a large crack in the lid, which most likely split from drying out over the years.Some edge wear, scrapes, patina, fading, variation of color, wood showing through, chipping, holes and nicks. This is a testament to its age and character. Obviously, it has survived for years and was very well made!
On the front of the trunk there is a small metal hasp for a latch but there is no latch or lock any more. The trunk has square nails in it as you can see in the bottom. On the left front side at the bottom, there's a piece of wood missing and there's a good-sized square nail as you can see in the pictures. The nails in the top are smaller and look like rose-head nails to us, they are somewhat round but rusty and gnarly.
Where you can see more of the sides of the nails you can tell that they are square nails. It measures about 17.25" L x 9.5" W x 9 H.
It weighs about 6 lbs. Please look at all of the pictures as they are part of our description. Ask lots of questions if needed!
