Bought this Jenny Lind a few weeks ago. I am now sure of the proper decade to place this one under being 1850's Thanks Jim. I didn't realized they came in oil cloth, let alone what I was thinking just canvas, as well as leather. This oil cloth covering, its a very soft fabric to the touch. Easily recognizable now with some proper understanding as to what the heck your looking at, I knew there was something different about it.. Thanks again Jim. The trunk measures in at 26" long x 15" deep x 14" tall. Brass lock with the working key which was nice. It has only two Brass end bands, top and front, were as the back one are just painted bands. It once had wheels on the underside, shown by the hardware remnants. Originally I was thinking to use the lock for the other all leather one I had just posted missing the key hole cover. The guy was asking 20.00 so what the heck, but it was a 9 1/2 hr trip there and back so that's not good. I found out, which is a total rarity, he was willing to ship the whole trunk which was 40.00. So that was a huge time and effort savings making it a great deal. Now that I have it, I have to keep it as a whole. The only trunk similar that I could find image wise, was none other than one of Brian's (greendog) trunks, that he did a amazing job on which I included in photo 4, thanks for posting your image. Hope that's OK Brian?
