French Traveling Trunk, Early 1900s


A large French traveling or steamer trunk in wood, leather and oil cloth, from the early 1900s. The pine bands along the front, top and back, as well as the outside oil cloth are stained a rich, medium brown. Leather strips CAP the outer edges and are secured with hundreds of tiny brass tacks, echoing the larger brass tacks in the pine bands. Brass hinges, reinforcements and corner caps add visual interest, and three functioning, attractive draw bolts are situated along the front. Large leather handles are attached to the side for ease of lifting. One side of the trunk bears black stenciled initials "L D". The inside is poplar lined with cream colored burlap. A great red leather satchel is attached to the inner lid and its flanked by two original manufacturer's tags that translate to "Travel Product Factory, Breuil, Town Hall Square, St. Etienne, Hunting and Leather Goods". This piece would make a marvelous coffee table.
