    The largest trunk that I own . 46"long 30" ht. of the apex at the dome 24"wide. Removed the destroyed center canvas, refinished the wood (poplar)very deep grain patterns. Saved the end canvas painted black
    except for the makers marks stamped on the end of the trunk.They read
    Maison Charles Burillon/J. Laquerbe Paris. They were cool so I clear coated them and restored the original "T" painted on each end . The interior is original with a ribbon pattern on the top inside lid. Tray is missing. Color
    picture of the Eiffel tower above the inside label. The black slats on top are
    3 1/2 " wide.

      The original handles are missing, someone nailed smaller ones over the top.
      I search for the originals so that I can change them back. All steel and Brass hardware.
