    1870's Pure Zinc Turtle Top barrel stave Trunk. It measure 32" Long x 17 1/2" Deep x 20" Tall. Complete with original as sold interior. No makers name. It doesn't have all the bells and whistle, but for the age and fragility of this type of metal covering it has certainly stood the test of time so it remains a very descent example of an 1870's pure zinc trunk. The Brass lock patent dates 1854, 67, 68 and 1870. Cast iron handle caps. Also has both working J. Arnold patented 1873 latches. Love the 1860's -70's trunk images in the litho on the lid.

      Thanks trunkman, This item has been listed for about a year and a half, I am not usually that part of the province to get it, but ended up close to it, so I made an honest effort to finally get my hands on it, as it is a very old one and in very descent shape for sure. The time listed certainly helped with the final price paid!! Thanks again!!
