Another One-of-a-Kind Dome Top Trunk for even the MOST Discerning Antique Collector/Investor, Executive, or Naval Officer! 30"L x 17"D x 23"H Fantastic All Metal and Wood 120-130 Year Old Antique Dome Top Trunk!

Most notable and unique was that the exterior pressed tin filigree of flowers and butterflies was in perfect (though oxidized) condition along with the original Victorian Lithographs and paper covering found on the inside lid, the hidden lid compartment, and the original lift out tray. These Victorian Lithographs are absolutely stunning in their detail with zero loss of color due to fading or damage. The interior paper covering below the liftout trays was removed to reveal the beautiful 120+ year old cured pine wood! The grit, laqueur and black japanning was carefully removed from the exterior oak wood slats, then scrubbed, and lightly sanded to reveal the beautiful oak wood grain. Unfortunately the lock was broken in the distant past, most likely because the key was lost. New leather handles and new end caps were installed. Dated Hardware: March 1880.

Almost Too Many Features to List! The original exterior pressed tin filigree design (of plants, flowers and butterfilies), though oxidized was in excellent condition and the detail was brought to life by applying a rich purple acrylic as the base with silver highlighting. Remants of the original gold lacquer were left untouched just on the inside of the trunk for provenance and historical purposes. All other external hardware was polished and then refreshed in a Black Japanning with the metal clamps being patent date stamped March, 1880! Unfortunately the lock is nonworking. The exterior Oak Wood Slats were lightly sanded to remove 120 Years of grime, japanning, and the old yellowed layers of protective laqueur coating which revealed a beautiful grain only seen on aged 100+ year old wood. These oak slats were then lightly refreshed in a red oak stain. New metal end caps and leather handles were installed.

The Original Victorian Lithogaphs and Paper found on the interior lid of the trunk and fully functional original liftout tray were able to be saved and both treated with two coats of a special professional sealer. There is a fully functional hidden compartment on the inside of the lid!! The Victorian Lithographs of young ladies and unique designs are incredibly detailed and bright never having faded or mildewed as many are! The interior inside of the trunk also had a paper covering which needed to be removed, wood scrubbed, dried and sanded to show the beauty of this aged 100 year old pine!

The entire trunk was properly scrubbed inside and out with a special cleaning solution, allowed to dry, and then two coats of spar varnish was applied as a wood preservative also offering UV protection and a hard coatin which also brings out the beauty and richness of the entire trunk. Folks, this is another one-of-a-kind antique trunk restored to the point of being able to last another 120 years!
