This toy/doll trunk is 14 wide and 10 inches tall. I've been working on this one for awhile, it is finally done. The last item that I needed to get done was the interior tray. Thanks to two fellow trunk lovers I was able to restore this with features that would have been there when it was originally made. I obtained a reproduction leather lock cover, it has the Excelsior name and patent date stamped in the leather. I was provided with pictures of a toy trunk like this that had the original tray. Using those pictures as a guide I had a tray with the removable hat box made. My carpenter/brother used old wood to construct the tray so it would have that aged patina, I added the covers to the trays. This is my favorite trunk in the growing collection of toy trunks.
