Early 1870's High End Fancy Nail Leather Barrel Stave Trunk. This 36" long beauty was sold by the time I saw it, but was fortunate enough that the people who bought it couldn't see in it what I could, and sold it to me days after they bought it...I couldn't believe it the whole way home...so just because something has been sold certainly doesn't mean you can't still own it. lol
One of my all time favorites... no die cast trimmings go figure... but I know for a fact that you pros out there can already see what this would look like when finished properly. Proportions of body, workmanship and layout balance is to me just stunning and I couldn't ask for any better. all patented hardware 1869-1871 nickle plated flush face lock ...the interior has a layout not tray but certainly not the end of the world for me. Don't have a maker but can't wait to get to this one.
