Picked this 1890's all Leather Barrel top Trunk today. Measures in at 34 L x 19D x 28T. No maker name. Nice Eastlake lock (not sure who produced them). A rarity for certain,... as but for a factory nail blip from the installation of the lid stay, the leather is perfect on all sides, with no tears, rips or cracks,. After seeing all sides in the ad photos, I was disappointed at first though, as it looked like the little white spot on the front of the lid was a tear that was re-glued ....always that one tear in the leather that ruins your perfect hand, but in person surprisingly it was simply a water mark thus leaving all leather unmarred...Bonus! The hardware on this piece is a blend of die-cast and tin. The interior is linen & complete with tray and layout. As well the handles are sound, so that's always handy to have just for transit. Overall its a great starter foundation for a future beauty & 20 minutes from home didn't hurt either.
