    Drill
    (58 items)

    I’m always on the look out for certain early patents or types of trunks. Here is a neat find that I needed to save from oblivion. An old (rectangular shaped)sole leather traveling trunk that I just picked up for next to nothing. I enjoyed the long 3 hr ride on a nice sunny day. Just got back and took some quick pictures. The interior is in good shape for it’s age. The lock (in need of picking )appears as British made. The exterior needs some definite stabilization of the sole leather. The majority of the older style brass buttons are present . It may be hard to find these cone shaped ones to replace them. Due to it’s age ,this trunk I will just stabilize and leave old and pretty. Although it’s not the trunk I was looking for . It is probably as close to a John Fitzgibbons
    11 Oct. 1841 trunk that I will find.

      For me anyway a trunk is sometimes like that poor little dog that has been abused or neglected and needs a home it hard to say no, I also have bought trunks that have seen better days because I didn't want to let it go to the wayside, believe me Drill, I understand.

      Nice old trunk. I got a Jenny Lind that has similar metal straps held on with the large brass button headed nails, just like yours. Let me know if you find a source for those, mine is missing a few.
