In order to celebrate my 100th post I present to you my "Perfection Wall Trunk". Wall trunks open with the back against a wall. They made fewer of them and thus are a rarer type and style of trunk. This one was made in the late 1880's and has all the features of a quality trunk including finger lift, cast iron corners and number 4 latches as well as two cast iron guides on the sides. My dilemma has been wether or not to strip off the canvas and refinish this trunk -- or to keep it as is. I am not fond of brown canvas -- however this one is in such good shape I fear altering it. Thanks for looking!
