    1890 - 1900s Antique Trunk, museum quality, richly embellished with many latches, surrounded by wood bands and leather. Interior has colorful painted Scandinavian designs and under lid is a burgundy leather pouch.
    "Well let me say first of all that this is a stunning trunk! High end high quality trunk form the 1880's -- I would put this in the category of a bride's trunk. It is in the waterfall or monitor style and form. Most of the hardware that I see on it appears to be from a secondary supplier -- they are beautiful clasps and iron fingering but often even high end trunk makers outsourced their hardware... only a few makers made and patented their own. Its a great trunk -- what a rescue!"

    Height 26inches, Depth 20inches, Length 36inches, Weight 50 lbs

      Nice trunk this is one that I refinished some time ago. I do all my Trunk work
      out of it .You will not find many of this type with that bottom hardware.The leather on yours looks pretty good.Mine was gone when I found it. Much luck
      thanks for the post.
