This is my mid 1800 leather gold rush trunk, or so I think that's the period it's from (it may be even older). It's 100% original and intact, including the handles. The leather straps are missing, but the original buckles remain. The leather is heavily embossed, but due to 150+ years of aging, doesn't show up well. The interior is fabric lined and all there. A lot of the leather had peeled away from the sides (but was all there) and I had to take leather stitch and reattach it. Other than that, all I had to do was clean it with glycerin saddle soap and condition the leather. This trunk has been one of my favorites for a long time.
