Trunk #11-1870s Leather-Covered Trunk w/all Original Exterior & Original Working Lock w/Key
This little leather-covered trunk was in excellent condition when we found it, especially considering it’s well over a hundred years old. We patched a couple small places in the leather, otherwise it’s all original. Note the Jenny Lind type brass buttons and metal bands. A pattern is stamped into the leather on the top. We managed to save the original working lock. A solid brass key is furnished. The leather handles are original. We thoroughly cleaned and resealed the inside then relined it. As always, the bottom has been thoroughly cleaned and resealed. This is a small trunk but would hold a lot of jewelry or other things worthy of it. Imagine it on a dresser or chest of drawers. We found it in Asheboro, NC on a local trunk-hunting trip.
