    Cute Jenny Lind doll trunk with brass nails. It is about 14 inches long and 9 inches tall. To clean it up I removed the worn paper from the exterior and refinished the wood, used about 6 coats of tung oil. I cleaned the brass nail heads up a little and painted the metal bands black. It originally had a tray but that has been lost over the years.

    I love these small trunks they are easy to work on and best of all you can have a lot of them without running out of room.

      KathyKay, you did just a BEAUTIFUL job on this, as usual. The Jenny Lind doll trunks are just something you don't see often. I've yet to come across one of these in my trunk searches. This one is just amazing looking!!

      jscott - thanks for the nice comment. This is the only Jenny Lind doll trunk I have, as you said they are hard to find. Currently, I have six full size Jenny Lind trunks, some with brass bands others have the black metal bands. Refinishing two of them as Christmas gifts for friends.
