I have been away for a while, and then right back at it.... pick this one up yesterday, 1870's barrel stave with original handles great overall exterior condition, as far as dings and dents are concerned. Lots of nifty nail work on this one. Extra wide oak slats at 3" wide verses the norm. with nail work on extra metal slat end covers. It is nice to see a little more elaborate pure zinc trunk in a dome top format, most I have seen are squarish or mild dome top & fairly plain overall. No tray in this one and only partial lid compartments. No makers name. Measures 31" long 19" deep and 27" tall. This one is very similar to the one I have listed here with the title "Early 1870's High End Fancy Nail & Leather Barrel Stave Trunk" .
