    Small trunk with brass bands and buttons. It measures 16 inches wide and 14 inches tall, nice size that can be displayed anywhere. These small ones are nice because at some point you run out of room for the monster ones in your home, at this point I am focused on finding and restoring small trunks. When I purchased this it had old dried up leather on it, so removed that and refinished the wood with tung oil. I polished up the brass bands and buttons, replaced the old worn out leather handle on the top and front straps. The tray inside is original, I used tung oil on the interior but covered sections with fabric to add a softer look.

      Great little trunk.... I love these small ones too. It's probably from the 1860's to 1870's. Most like this were advertised as hat trunks. Beautiful! Marvin,
