Fantastic All Wood Desktop Size 14"L x 9"D x 11"H Antique Dome Top Trunk! Also known as a "Salesman Sampler" this antique trunk would fit perfectly on a Desk, Table, Shelf or Dresser as a Jewelry or Document Box.

Working Lock AND Key!!

Exterior was originally covered in canvas and the interior with a thin paper were both removed to reveal the beautiful 100+ year old cured pine wood. The entire trunk was scubbed, dried and lightly sanded with a coat of spar varnish applied. New front latch, new leather handles and front belts replaced the older worn out ones. Has the original liftout tray, original end caps were re-mounted, and a working lock but no key, new leather handles and original end caps.

The interior and liftout tray were both covered in a thin paper. Both exterior and interior coverings were carefully removed which revealed the beautifully grained and seasoned pine wood body and oak wood slats that only 100+ year old wood can achieve. The hardware was polished and then refreshed in a Black Japanning of Black Oak. The entire trunk was scrubbed with a special cleaning solution, let to dry, and then the pine wood body and oak wood slats were lightly sanded to further reveal the fantastic grain and character of the wood. In the past some repairs were done to the wood, a new front lock latch and chain lid stay were put on, new front leather belts and leather handles replaced the older worn out belts. All hardware was refreshed in a black oak japanning. Working lock but no key. We know the lock works but could not find an adequate key to be used. Perhaps some day a key can be found. Original end caps were re-installed.
