Hello CW friends!!!
I just acquired this amazing little herringbone canvas covered suitcase, or trunk if you will. I was amazed at the condition this one is in. I did give it a good steam cleaning and polished the brass buttons. To find those style of leather handles still intact is fairly rare.
Based on the lock style, the Jenny Lind style brass buttons and the handle type, I'd place this one sometime between 1850 to 1890. Just not sure of the exact decade this one was made.
I love the herringbone canvas and the lock style on this one. The fact that it survived all these years is just incredible. The case is 17" long, 12" tall and 9" deep.
I'll post the purple striped interior in the next post.
Thanks for stopping to have a look!
