Purchased this trunk at a second hand store a few weeks ago and immediately started working on it, took off the cracked leather, cleaned the brass and stained/finished the wood. The trunk sat in the store for a few weeks and the asking price had dropped to $10.00. I couldn't pass it up at that bargain price. I found another one a few days later with iron bands and brass buttons also for the great price of $10.00. Seems like a lot of folks don't see the beauty under the cracked leather and tarnished brass so I'm happy to buy them.
It is approximately 30 inches long and 16 inches tall. I now have four Jenny Lind trunks with brass bands two are larger and one is smaller than this one. I'm running out of room so something has to go. I think all trunk lovers have space issues but we continue to buy more.
