This is a Jenny Lind style smaller piece that was carried along with a full-sized trunk. It is 17 x 12 x 8.5 inches. It is covered in tooled leather with metal bands and brass studs. It has a brass lock and still has the brass lock cover. It also has the original leather handles and straps with buckles. It dates to the 1860s or 1870s. The inside still has some of the original paper. I bought this in an antique store in West Virginia. I've cleaned it up and polished the metal. Right now, I'm planning to leave the interior as it is. It looks nice sitting in front of my leather covered Jenny Lind trunk!
