Antique 19th Century Trunk from Austria with Original Paint


Antique 19th century painted pine trunk from Austria, dated 1846. Most of the original painted design remains on the top, both sides and the front, which features 3 square panels. The center panel has the date of 1846 painted above the red roofed buildings. This is flanked by two square panels each with a vase of pink roses on a light blue background. Inside is a large open storage space and a small utility box which can act as a lid support. A satin wax finish brings out the color and adds to the country charm of this storage chest. Please take a moment to enlarge the photos and examine the details up close.
