Antique Trunk #613 - Beautiful 1880s Medium-Size Embossed, Metal Domed Top Trunk

It's hard to imagine why people painted these beautiful trunks, but they did. Originally this was painted 2-tone beige, hiding the hardware detail and beauty of the wood. The craftsmanship makes this a real treasure.

Since dome top trunks were made for the wealthier traveler and were designed to always end up on the top of the trunk pile for safe keeping, this trunk weathered the travel well. Many times, this style of trunk finds its way to the foot of a bed. In any setting it becomes a beautiful focal point. This is a popular size trunk because it fits in most spaces.

Outside

  1. The replacement antique lock is not original and does not have a key.

  2. The four curved slats were steamed, formed, and dried to follow the contour of the dome top.

  3. The hardwood slats are attached with fancy slat clamps. All are in great condition. We replaced the missing fancy center decorative clamp with one we have been saving from a different embossed metal trunk.

  4. The hasps are in great condition and work well.

  5. The embossed metal pattern is identified as "Pansies." It truly is beautiful.

  6. The bottom corner hardware includes bottom rollers to help with mobility, empty or full. We added a missing bottom roller, so the trunk sits level.

  7. The replacement leather handles are from brettunsvillage.com. The handle hardware is original.

Inside

  1. The inside offers a nice useable storage area.

The inside and outside are finished with a Tung oil mixture and then a light coat of satin polyurethane. The finish is waterproof and soft to the touch.

This trunk measures 28.5 inches wide, 16 inches front to back, and 20 inches tall (measurements include hardware).

Our price includes insurance, packaging, and shipping to any of the 48 contiguous states. If you are west of the Mississippi, please add $25 to the price. Ca: 1880s

Price: $600
