      "Stunning" part two -- Drill most trunks are covered in canvas but your trunks are your canvas...
      lucky for the rest of us....

      I have been a little busy lately however when I can I click CL and still find myself always coming back to this trunk. Truly incredible.

      Drill, can you have a look at this and tell me what you think? I'm considering buying this because it is so unique. Thanks!!!

      Drill, I made this person an offer and I'm planning to pick this one up tonight. I believe this one is French. But, I'd like your opinion on it. I've not seen a dome top French trunk before.
    11. Drill Drill, 6 years ago
      Hey Scott ,It is a bridal trunk I will try to find you a picture of another one that I've seen in the past,It was originally leather .It has been listed for about four months now. I might have gotten that one if I was closer.I do believe it is American made 1870s or so but could be british.Most french trunks don't have caster bottom corners or lithography, would love to see the back hinges, though.The high dome does have a unique strong back support that you don't see very often, it is worth the money.Much luck

      Sarah Bernhart trunk is similar to the one you are looking at.Trunk # 716 or so 2 years ago on CW.

      Drill, I believe you are absolutely correct on that on!! I made him an offer of $75 and he took it. I just got back from picking it up. I'll post it shortly. Thanks again!!!
