A recent addition to my collection -- a pristine leather bound Jenny Lind with brass straps and rivets. The beauty of this trunk is the shape that it is in. All the leather is intact, and the leather scrolling is fabulous. What is unique to this trunk are the six brass bands -- usually there are four -- sometimes five but rare to see six full across. The handles are like new. A great example of a Jenny Lind at the zenith of the art and craftsmanship of the period. A huge thanks goes to SenorTrunk who had a similar trunk and mailed me a key -- this trunk is now perfectly complete!
