Found this in the Sacramento Bee Classifieds about 21 years ago. The women of the house had beautiful antiques, but the The trunk she sold me was painted black. Yes another one painted. I wanted this trunk. She wanted 50.00 bucks. I gave it to her. The trunk was mine.
Now, all I had to do was strip the paint off. You might not want to know how I did this, but I will tell you. I use a razor blade to remove the paint. It takes a steady hand and a lot of time. Then of course sand paper. This could take me a few months to finish. I love the scalloped edges and hardware. It's missing the end handles and leather bindings that wrap the trunk., But is totally solid. Including 4 caster wheels.
Still working on this. Any one know what year this might be.
26'H from bottom to the highest slat. 32"L slat to slat.
