Antique Dome Top Pirates Trunk
This is handsome large dome top trunk dating to the 19th century.
This substantial trunk would have once been used on long sea voyages as a piece of luggage storing clothes and valuables, it is well made, solid and fairly heavy.
The main body of the trunk is made of pine which has been clad in embossed metal.
The lid and sides are strengthened with wooden banding and to either end is a leather strap handle.
The front is fitted with two catches and a central lock, sadly we don't have the key so the lock just sits over its keeper without locking into place.
The lid opens to reveal a paper lined interior with an old decorative label to the right hand side.
The trunk is in good structural condition.
There are marks of age and use, dents and ripples to the metal.
The handles and lid stays are later antique replacements and the interior has marks and tears here and there. The interior tray has been lost somewhere in time.
There are a few old wood worm holes to the front.
The measurements are taken at the widest points.
