French Traveling Trunk, Early 1900s


A tall, handsome antique travel trunk in oil cloth and brass, French, circa 1900. Rich brown textured oil cloth covers a wooden frame, pine bands brace the top and sides, brass bands reinforce the edges and corners, and iron strapping trims out the lid's closure. A large brass lock and plate grace the center front, flanked by two ornate iron locks on either side. The top has a decorative oval of brass tacks. Very thick leather handles on either side. Would make a great side or coffee table.
