Another One-of-a-Kind Trunk Large Size Dome Top Trunk. 31"L x 21"D x 27"H

This fantastic all wood 120-130 Year Old Antique Trunk was a high end constructed trunk which had an exterior of hand tooled leather (removed during restoration) and used the thickest of pine boards, oak wood slats, a brass working lock (no key) and heavy duty hardware both of which have stamped patent dates ranging from 1867 to 1879. The exterior leather and interior paper coverings were removed to reveal the beautiful 130+ year old cured pine and oak wood! The laqueur and black japanning was removed from the exterior oak wood slats, scrubbed and lightly sanded to reveal the beautiful grain. All the black japanning was carefully removed and hardware polished revealing the patent dates and leaving a beautiful though ruggedly handsome silvery finish. New front leather lid holdown Straps and leather handles were installed using the original end caps.

All Hardware and over 500 nail heads were polished and then refreshed in a black japanning except for the working brass lock (but no key). The Two Exterior Front Leather Holdown Straps were Removed and Replaced. The Exterior Oak Wood Slats were Lightly Sanded to Remove 120 Years of Grime and the Old Layers of Protective Laqueur Coating to Reveal a Beautiful Grain only Seen on 100+ Year Old Wood. The Black Japanning Was Carefully Polished Off of Most of the Hardware which Revealed Patent Dates as well as the Beautiful Silvery Patina! The Entire Exterior was Covered in Hand Tooled Leather Indicating that this was a "High End" Trunk, but due to the Age it Could Not Be Saved and Needed to be Removed, However there are still faint design impressions in the wood from the leather covering. The Interior of the Trunk was Completely Covered in a Thin Paper Which Also Needed to Be Removed (along with the glue) which Revealed some Large Circular Impressions left in the Wood from the Original Saw Cuts! After Scrubbing both the Interor and Exterior, Air Drying in the Sunlight, and a Light Sanding the Pine Wood Body and Oak Slats Revealed their Ruggedly Handsome Character and Wood Grain! Then 3 Coats of Protective Spar Varnish was applied so as to Preserve both Wood and Metal Hardware. This also Brought Out the Beauty and Richness of the Wood Grain that only 100+ Years Can Achieve! New Front Leather Holdown Straps and Leather Handles were Added but the Original Iron End Caps were Retained! dates on most all of the hardware All in all this 130-140 Year Old Trunk is in Outstanding Condition and will be a Focal Point in any Room it is in!
