Here is a lovely 1890's wall trunk (opens while flat against a wall) manufactured in Montreal Canada. I saw this in the classified adds and called to pick it up. It was covered in a tattered green canvas. I was surprised to find out when I picked it up that it was a wall trunk--bonus! (notice the hinges on the top) Montreal made -- double bonus! Interestingly enough (to me) it is the first trunk of this type that I have come across that has a body made out of cedar and not pine. Also it has nice leather trim. The big brass buttons are great. I am very pleased with how it came out refinished. The latch reminds me of a reese's peanut butter cup. (What that has to do with anything I am not sure) I have one more wall trunk as a project for this summer (a Millar from Boston). Another joy of discovery trunk moment...
