This is an amazing piece of craftsmanship, This Large 32x21x23 Trunk is amazing. It needs lot of repair but when it is fixed it will the pride of your home. It does not have it's keys. have tried to take pictures of all the damage
It does have the corner supports. and all the hinges although at least is broken in the back that holds the lid on.
There is very unusual metal decoration on the front and back of the lid that looks like crown. can't find any manufacturer information on it. There is an alligator skin around all of the trunk between the exterior slats.
This is domed piece and would sit pride of place on top of the rest of the trunks.
I wish knew how to repair and restore this piece as would keep it for myself. I'm afraid if tried that would ruin it and would make it worse.
This really needs to go to the right person. hope it finds great home.
Shipping of course will be expensive and will have to buy extra materials to do so. have added an addition $10 handling fee for insurance.
