I found this on Craigslist and picked it up today for 60 dollars, some lady in Fort Wayne was selling because she needed the room. It seems to be a Jenny Lind type trunk with five iron bands, brass covered nail heads, curved top and bottom and seven slats but with a bit of a dome top to it. The leather covering is in pretty good shape but has a lot of wear in some places and someone painted it on the sides. It measures 27 inches long by 16 inches wide and 16 inches high. I don't really need another project but I was pretty tickled to get it since I'd never seen a Jenny Lind with a dome to it and it's in pretty good shape. I can just see myself on that TV show Hoarders in about ten years, either that or my kids will be sorting through a garage full of trunks when I kick the bucket.
