This little doll dresser trunk has been in my collection for about 5 years now. It's about 16" wide, 13" tall, and 9" deep. It's all original with the canvas covering, small wheels, pull out drawers and upper compartment. The brass lock is marked "Pat. July 8, 1884". This has been one of my favorite mini trunks since I found it. The pictures in it are from children's stories or fairy tales. I know some people may call these a salesman's sample but I really think they were made as toys, mostly because some of the early trunk maker's catalogs listed a variety of these as "toy trunks". Thanks for looking!
