This is a Late 1880's Carpet Covered Trunk in Excellent Condition that I just picked up. It is in completely original un-restored condition. I did clean it and made a new pair of handles for it. These trunks are quite rare on their own, and finding one in good shape is even more rare. (carpet did not fare too well over time) This one is just unbelievable! The carpet has little if any wear and the slat design is quite unique. I also thought the mixture of Japanned parts, and tinned parts was very nice. The interior took more abuse than the exterior, and I have not decided if I will do anything to it.
Hope you enjoy it,
