Another curb find. This is a nice actual steamer trunk -- named due to the fact that it was the correct size to fit under a bunk in the cabin of an ocean going vessel. It was covered with a drab brown canvas. I took off the canvas and put on a nice walnut stain on the pine body. It now adorns my office.

    Never really knew what the term "steamer trunk" meant. Thank you for the lesson.
