1870's Barrel Top Antique Trunk with Zinc Trim
This is an 1870,s, barrel top trunk. It has very unique solid Zinc trim on the center band, and slat end protectors. This was a very high end trunk as is evidenced by the nickel plated, solid brass lock, and the tooled leather covering (long gone now). This trunk was manufactured by Carpeles & Heiser and has their patent corner hing stays, and patent center hinges. They even allude to this on the label. The trunk has the original leather lid lifter, and handmade, stitched leather replacement handles. The interior is complete with cloth lining, tray, chromolithograph, and label. The trunk measures 30" long, 20" wide, and 27 1/2" high. Shipping included. Thank you.
