      I believe it is a antique doll trunk 1800's- early 1900's . I have seen many of these in doll collections ,very beautiful .

      I have a regular size trunk almost exactly like it. I also collect samples. Would you let me know if you are ever interested in selling it?

      My trunk was passed down through the family. Sadly, I know very little about it.

      Thanks,
      Mary

      Wonderful salesman trunk. Some also refer to these as toy trunks or doll trunks. It's fairly rare to see the complete interior and in such beautiful condition. I have several in my collection, but not a tin covered one like this. There are still many of this type of trunk available today, but most I come across do not have the wonderful original interior as yours does. I have on with the same identical hardware, bit mine is covered in striped canvas.
