    Another one of my child sized antique trunks. Not sure of the age of this one, but sometime in the mid to late 1800's.

    Most of the brass buttons are original to the trunk. A few were missing and I had no other option but to replace them (only about 5 though).

    Check out the bottom of this one. It has the name of the transfer company and its' to and from destination written in grease paint ( Stearns and Glossert Co. Via Humbolt and Troy Junction, NEB). I've never seen anything like that before. I thought that was great that the writing is still there.
    I still have this one. My wife keeps boxes of photographs in it.

    Thanks for looking!!
    Scott

      I dig the bottom 2, Thats my favorite type of thing to find, I live for finding a name under the canvas,I have found ( initials) or marks under the canvas of 2 french trunks so far ,they liked to leave their mark.
    8. jscott0363 jscott0363, 7 years ago
      Drill, I cleaned out an old trunk a couple of years ago and you know how they would tape up and cracks in the wood before lining it? This one had an excessive amount of tape in the bottom and someone had written with a pencil the following: "NOT CLEANING UP THE MESS FROM THE BRAT TRUNK MAKER". It made me laugh out loud!! I'll have to post that so all can see that even workers in the 1800's got a little disgruntled every now and then:)

      Hi
      Scott
      What a nice find here, and writing underheat, that's Unbelievable.
      You find it ,,,,,in this condition ??
      2H1/2 to go

      Regards
      Alan

      A BIG THANKS to you BB2!! And a Happy, Healthy and Prosperous 2015 to you my friend!!
    14. jscott0363 jscott0363, 7 years ago
      Thanks Alan! No, I didn't find the trunk in this condition. I refinished the trunk and left the bottom alone, so as to not disturb any of the original writing. I had to replace the bottom slat as it was severely rotted and covering a seam in the bottom of the trunk. I had no choice but to replace the slat. But, it did not cover any of the writing.
      Happy 2015 to you my friend!!

      Well, there won't be a 14 on any of our markers unless it is the day! The villagers didn't gather with pitchforks after I rattled the windows for 1/2 km around last nite with both blunderbusses! LOL!
    17. jscott0363 jscott0363, 7 years ago
      Well, I'm definitely glad the pitchfork thing didn't happen!!

      Neat ,Funny stuff,the Brat trunk maker must have ticked off the interior upolsterer/ finisher.

      Ok jscott-- I have officially lost track of your trunks!!! I thought I had already loved this but lo and behold a new posting! You have made it look so pristine! Very lovely...
    24. jscott0363 jscott0363, 7 years ago
      Thanks Drill!! Yeah, I busted out laughing when the inside of that trunk dried, because it was written in pencil and didn't show up when wet!
    25. jscott0363 jscott0363, 7 years ago
      Thanks T-man!! Yep, they say a true trunk head can't have enough trunks. I think I officially do now! Thanks for the kind comment and the love!!!
