Saw this one last year and was finally able to acquire it. It is certainly one you don't see very often. An 1870's - 1880's ornate barrel stave Trunk. It measures in at 39" Long x 23" deep x 32" Tall .....it's a big one. Missing top tray but lower is present. I don't think they had any space left to put more cast trimmings. It has loads of attributes of a fine quality trunk.. cast trims everywhere, extra detail nail work everywhere, extra detail metal work everywhere, nice large fancy sessions shoulders and hinges & Rare handle caps which is nice to see. Even though it has these 90 degree hinges with stay, they still felt compelled to use and interior lid support, probably because of its size. A ton of effort went into this one for sure. I am very pleased to be able to share it with you guys and gals ... I hope you like it as much as I do!!
