As stated in condition this very old trunk has some wear and the character marks of long eventful journey but it's lovely journeyed presentation makes this terrific old piece even more special. I have included close ups from all sides in an attempt to accurately represent it's design, quality, construction, condition and overall beauty of this stellar antique Korean trunk.

He and his adventurous wife and love of his life Sylvia, whom he met mid-way into his career while stationed in Australia, opted to take assignments and tour of duty a bit off the usually "more desirable" track officers frequently request as they advance, instead opting for more exotic regions around the world including Africa, Asia, South and Central America, Cuba and the Middle East. They were both "people" people who were thoroughly invested in meeting others from around the world and exploring their cultures and countryside with them. Gary grew up in Kansas and from childhood Gary loved and collected old and beautiful things. Sylvia and Gary had many adventures during their 40 year of marriage as they continued to travel even after Gary's eventual retirement. Collecting antique and vintage items was a lifelong hobby for Commander Cline and Sylvia quickly fell into seeking out and collecting fine items during their travels as well.
Unfortunately Sylvia lost Gary after a long bout with cancer. She took his ashes on a lengthy trip around the world revisiting many of their favorite places before returning him to the waters in Australia where they first met.Years have continued to pass and Sylvia is ready to let their collections go. She has some charitable causes she feels deeply passionate about she'd like to help out with the proceeds of her sales. This item is in the category "Antiques\Furniture\Trunks & Chests".
