This is my English made patent leather trunk. It was manufactured in England in either the late 1800's or early 1900's. The interior is lined with a plain white canvas material. It once had a small tray inside, but that is long gone.
Given the age of this little trunk, I think it's in very nice condition. It did take some cleaning and conditioning when I got it. Other than that, I'll need to do nothing more to this one.
All of the leather trim and handle are fully intact. It's rare to find the leather straps and buckles still intact, on this style of trunk. And these are not only still intact but in really nice condition still. It does have a small tear in the patent leather. But, nothing too serious. Very nice heavy brass hardware with copper rivets on this one.
This is one of my favorite styles and size of trunks. So, when I find one in really nice condition, like this one, I try to snag on to it (if the price is right!).
Thanks for looking!!
