Hi,The other day I was at my local flea market and came across this old Jenny Lynn salesman sample or doll trunk at my local flea market it was on a five dollar table so for $5 I bought it. I love and collect old steamer trunks and I go crazy when i see Salesman sample trucks It was hard for me to beleve it was only $5 And this truck still had its original tray which is often missing The trunk also has its side handles which is also often missing. This trunk measures approximately 1 foot wide by 7.5"tall the outside of this trunk is covered with paper some of the paper has come off I would like to seal the out side of the trunk but don't want to take away from its original condition.I added the nice old looking paper to the bottom of the trunk (not glued)and in the bottom of the tray also (not glued )I also added the Victorian lady picture I don't know how old his truck is I believe this is a Jenny Lynn? trunk. And I beleve it was made sometime in the late 1800s but not sure on the exact day if anyone out there could please give me more information about this trunk that would be gladly appreciated thank you and I hope you all enjoyed reading.
