    I had posted this trunk several years back and removed it as I was going to sell it... changed my mind but forgot it was no longer with my collection on this site. The owner of this trunk had inherited furniture from France and had a container of beautiful pieces shipped to him in Canada -- wow some of the gorgeous furniture -- well this was a part of the shipment and his story was that his family had acquired it from a hotel in France as there were often no closets in the old hotels just these lovely trunks. It's all leather with brass studs as you can see -- the lock appear to be handmade, odd thing is they are exactly the same but two different sizes... The nails, particularly the top left appear to be rose head. hard to confirm a date so I'm speculating on this...

      T-man,
      That is SPECTACULAR!!!!!! What a an incredible beauty this is. It's fits all of my favorite trunk categories, French, leather and spectacular!! Now I'm jealous:)

      Efesgirl thanks so much for the comment- funny thing about my collection is that it fluctuates and some are chests and not trunks and awhile ago I gave up keeping track! I have some in my office, some in my loft, a lot in my home so let's just say around 30 of various shapes and sizes... thanks for asking... someone asked me today if I was a trunk 'hoarder" which in part I am, but I do let some go back into the wild after a time so I'm not hopeless ... yet.
