Small Desktop or Dresser Size Dome Top Restored Antique Trunk 18"L x 11"D x 11"H These small "salesman samplers" are VERY rare.

This antique trunk would fit perfectly on a Desk, Table, Shelf or Dresser as a Jewelry or Document Box. Both the exterior and the interior were covered with a thin paper which when removed revealed the beautiful 100+ year old cured pine wood. Fortunately the thin paper covering and lithographs were able to be saved in the lid and on the original liftout tray. The entire trunk was scubbed, dried and lightly sanded with a coat of spar varnish applied. Has the original end caps, remnants of the interior paper found on the inside lid remain along with the fantastic Victorian Lithograph of a young girl. Has a working lock but no key. Finished off in a red mahogany revealing all of the unique character of the pine and oak woods.

Working Lock AND Key!!

During the restoration we were able to save the thin paper covering inside the lid along with the Victorial Lithograph of a young girl. Additionally we were able to save the paper covering and lithograph designs on the original liftout tray as well. We removed and then remounted the original tin end caps. The Exterior was originally covered in thin paper in a design representing a trunk. Working Lock but no Key! Once the paper covering was carefully removed the trunk was scrubbed with a cleaning solution, dried, and sanded revealing the beautifully grained pine wood body and oak wood slats that only 100+ years of seasoning can achieve. The hardware was carefully polished to remove both grit and oxidation! The trunk was then hand stained with red mahogany and then 2 coats of protective spar varnish was applied
