I obtained this Camel back trunk from a friend when she moved out of her family home. Her great-grandmother, grandmother and mother had all lived in this house and no one had ever really cleaned out the attic and basement. There were many nice items, but this was my favorite. These pictures do not do justice to the beautiful interior. When I opened the trunk for the first time I found a ladies lace hankie, a small book titled "The Floral Gift from Nature and the Heart" with an 1850 print date, and several ladies hat pins. The book has a very faint inscription which is mostly illegible, except a clear first line, "I love You . . ."
The trunk itself has a very plain exterior which I will probably paint, but I intend to keep the interior as it is.
