    I restored (repurposed) this little stagecoach trunk a couple of years ago. I say it's a stagecoach trunk, but not completely sure about that as it does have rollers on the bottom VS. skids.
    I refinished the exterior and completely relined the interior, using the original lithograph that was inside the lid. I tried to keep the interior as close to the original design as possible (I have a lot of antique style wallpaper in my shop to choose from).
    The handles and end caps are original. I simply re-wrapped the handles in canvas, just as they originally were. I made the leather straps, on the front, but the buckles are the original buckles.
    As for the painted design, I must have been filled with the Christmas spirit at the time. But still, I thought it turned out well.
    The trunk is rather small (about 26" X 12" X 12"). But, I love the small trunks, as they're a lot easier to work with and easier to store as well.
    This one now belongs to one of our local Priests' who was thrilled to have it. I know he's taking good care of it.
    I'm not truly sure of the age of this one, but I'm guessing around the 1860's to 1870's.

    Thanks for looking!!
    Scott

      Wow -- a real beauty! I have yet to tackle an interior -- you did a fantastic job on this one.
    2. jscott0363 jscott0363, 7 years ago
      Thank you T-man!! My work can't compare to yours and others on CW. But, I do try. Interiors are and have been something I do enjoy. But, it is very time consuming. This interior took most of a day to complete.
      Thanks again, I do appreciate the kind comment and the love!!

      Jscott... you are among equals my friend.... I know my quality wanes substantially as I am not a perfectionist and am way to impatient to ever be one... so your work is an inspiration...

      Thank you T-man!! That really means a lot to me!! Truly!

      T-man is correct,Don't kid yourself your trunks are among the best on this site. I love the smaller older
      trunks in your fabulous collection , they are sometimes hard to find . I think it's because you have them all Scott, Ha! I like that X-mas spirit on this trunk.The interior is clean and well done as usual. Side note: I will try to get pictures of
      hat pins up when I can.
