Antique Trunk #671

Beautiful, Flat Top Trunk with Leatherette Trim, Leather Straps, and Working Lock & Key

This trunk has it all: beauty, function, and original hardware. The contrast between the light wood tone, numerous knots, the leatherette, and stunning hardware makes this an exceptional piece of 1880s history.

This trunk is very similar to our trunk #669, which sold only a few days after we listed it. This trunk is simply beautiful and very well-built. Someone took wonderful care of it over the years.
