I posted this one about a year or so ago, but thought I would repost it. Brass bound Jenny, original leather is in unbelievable condition all the way around,you don't find them like this very often and I've never seen another that looks like this one. Original key, wood slats,I believe are hickory, good size, 30 inches long, 18 inches tall and 18 inches deep, if some you remember this one was painted black from head to toe, was able to remove the paint to reveal what you now see. replaced leather straps and handles and repapered the interior with a picture of Jenny Lind herself. Thanks for looking again, greendog.

    You've done incredible work on this. I'd have to say that this has got to be the most beautiful Jenny Lind I've ever seen! The leather tooling, the interior and everything else about this is over the top incredible!

    Wow -- what an incredible trunk... and such beautiful restoration! I have one similar but without the wood slats which makes this one exceptional -- bonus beautiful lock... just superb!

    Really sharp! Was this the original leather covering??

    Thanks Im4anythingOld, yes original leather, everything was painted black when I got it, wasn't sure it was going to come off but as you can see it did, greendog.
