Robert Burr Small Antique Trunk    Robert Burr Small Antique Trunk
Antique Small Wooden/metal Trunk by Robert Burr of Boston, MA. This is a small documents or personals trunk made by Robert Burr, a well-known trunk maker in Boston in the mid nineteenth century. I use it for doilies, table-toppers and other small linens. It is 14" long x 8 1/2" wide x 6 1/2 high and weighs 5 lb. The inside is covered in paper of a red/brown/white swirly stripe and carries the label of Robert Burr, trunk maker.

The top and sides are festooned with brass tacks and there is a fancy diamond on top with a brass handle. The trunk closes and can be carried by handle, and there is a lock but unfortunately no key. The bottom is covered in old polka dot paper under a shellack-type coating. There is a heavy cotton strap attached to top & bottom to hold lid open. This may have had leather trim along the bottom but I do not believe the box was covered in leather at any time.

This is a wonderful pre-civil war trunk made by a well-know and prolific Boston trunk maker Robert Burr of Hanover Street. This item is in the category "Antiques\Furniture\Trunks & Chests". The seller is "413momngram2" and is located in this country: US. This item can be shipped to United States.
