Hello fellow collectors!!
This is another one of my French made hat trunks. This one is from around the 1920 to 1930 period. It's still in pretty good condition, considering it's age. It still retains it's original tray and drop in webbed basket that most French hat trunks are known for.
I thought that this trunk was black when I bought it. But, after some intense cleaning, I found that it's actually navy blue. The interior is in nice condition, short of the unfortunate stain on the inside of the lid. But, the quilted lid and ribbon design are still quite beautiful, despite the stain.
It still has a couple of travel stickers remaining and the one on the side is the most readable and clearly says Paris. The one on the top says California. So, this trunk would have traveled back and forth from Paris to California at one time or another.
It's not a Louie Vuitton, but still a very high quality made French hat trunk.
Thanks for stopping to have a look!!!!
