Hello CW friends!!!
I saw this very ornate leather covered trunk and had to have it. I've never seen another like it. But, I also have no worldly idea of where or when it was made.
The leather is still in fantastic condition, but still needed a really good cleaning and conditioning with saddle soap. I've never seen this many brass decorations or that many intricate designs before. It's trimmed out in hammered sheet brass and the main decorative designs are also hammered sheet brass. This one also has hand wrought iron handles.
I did a quick relining of the interior, as someone previously had stripped out the original red fabric lining. I finished cleaning it out and relined it with red striped fabric.
I'm hoping that some of you other trunk collectors out there can help me identify this one.
This one measures 24" long, 17" tall and 13" deep.
I do sincerely appreciate you all for stopping in to have a look!!!!
