Rear Views of Beautiful 1880s Dome Top Trunk
|Embossed patterns on trunks
became popular in the late 1870s. They were not possible until then because
the presses needed to emboss the metal so beautifully had not been
perfected. This little beauty features the Basketweave pattern which was
very popular for a couple decades but hard to find these days. Fortunately
the pattern here was in good condition so we were able to clean it and
restore the relief in two colors. The pattern goes across the top and all
way round the four sides. Nice hardwood staves with a pretty grain also go
across the top and sides. Heavy cast metal hasps of the double-cross design
keep the lid closed. We replaced the lid stay and the leather handles. The
replacement handles are nice new double-stitched leather. The inside of the
trunk has been completely stripped and resealed then relined with new paper
so you know it's sanitary and safe. Although not a large trunk it still has
plenty of storage space. The bottom, as with all our restorations, has been
repaired and resealed. We found this little beauty in Asheboro, NC on one of
our local trunk hunts.
