Trunk #1-Beautifully Restored 1880s Dome Top W/TWO Original Working Locks, Alligator Embossed Pattern, Original Lithograph and More

Beautifully Restored 1880s Dome Top W/TWO Original Working Locks, Alligator Embossed Pattern, Original Lithograph and More, Top/Front

Embossed patterns started in the late 1870s when there were finally available mechanical presses to create them. Many different subjects were used for the patterns such as floral and geometric patterns. Other patterns came along too such as the Alligator pattern. This beautiful 1880s dome top is an excellent example of the Alligator embossed pattern. The pattern is on all four sides and across the top. Mechanically, the pattern was in excellent condition but most of the paint was missing so we’ve restored it in two colors to bring back the relief. The wide, heavy staves are hardwood with a nice grain. The original working locks are still there along with two antique keys. We’ve replaced the handles with nice new double-stitched leather ones. We’ve left just enough bruises to show its age. Inside is the original and rare lithograph of a race horse, sulky and driver. As usual, the interior has been thoroughly restored, along with the bottom and its rollers. This is a fairly large trunk so it has quite a bit of lockable storage space and will fit in with just about any decor – foot of a bed, foyer, bay window, you name it. This is a fantastic piece from yesteryear and it won’t be long before someone snatches it up, so if you like it as well as everyone here then give us a call at 336-765-3998 or email us at: contactus@oldtrunks.com and we’ll have it professionally packed & on its way to your home within hours.
