Pictures-Ladies

Please note that all of the items below are EXAMPLES only and are all original artwork. They are NOT FOR SALE. Reproductions are available from other sources. Please note that WE DO NOT USE REPRODUCTION pictures in our restorations.

Many rounded top trunks had artwork inside (I have seen very few flat tops with pictures). Inside the lid was a favorite place for the artwork which consisted of narrow paper tape borders and/or lithograph pictures. Artwork was also placed on trays and other locations within the trunks. Most of the pictures were of women or children, sometimes children with small animals like dogs and cats. Lithographs were printed by outside firms and sold to different trunk makers. With a few exceptions, we've never found any connection between particular trunk makers and artwork. We always preserve any artwork that is salvageable. The new lining is then worked around the artwork. A crack or small tear in the picture is common, they are usually caused by the wood of the trunk drying out and splitting. Unfortunately many pieces of artwork did not survive at all. We will be adding more pictures as we come across them. Let us know if you have a favorite you'd like to share and we'll post it.
