Nice Refinished Antique Dome Top Trunk With Working Lock & Key
Here is cute refinished dome top steamer trunk or travel trunk from the late 1800's. We definitely encourage anyone to read some of our thousand plus happy customers' nice compliments about the beautiful trunks they have purchased from us in our positive feedback section. Here are the trunk's measurements: from left to right across the front is 30 1/2 inches, from floor to top is approximately 22 inches, and from front edge to back edge is 16 1/2 inches. We have taken ten pictures above for you to view. We have removed some of the metal from this trunk to expose the wood underneath. This trunk appears to be made up of pine base wood with oak or ash outer slat boards, while the dome top seems to be poplar. The wood has been finished with three coats of polyurethane by Minwax. The wood is in pretty nice condition with some typical older nicks and dings in various places. The base wood has peachy tan color, while the outer slat boards are more medium brown. This lovely trunk comes with the original working lock. We have matched up key that does work in this lock with little practice. These older early locks were not nearly as smooth operating as today's lock mechanisms. The front two latches are also original and in good working condition. The side handles were missing and have been replaced with Amish made black leather stitched straps. All of our leather products come from an Amish man in an Amish community near our home here in Pennsylvania. The metal components making up this trunk are not brass and therefore have been brush painted by hand in black and gold leaf. Going to the interior of this nice hump back trunk, we have removed the interior paper lining which was worn out looking. We then finished the interior wood with two coats of polyurethane. A nice picture has been added to the underside of the dome for you to view. The interior is in nice condition considering how old this trunk actually is. Going to the exterior bottom underneath the trunk, it has normal wear. This trunk has the four factory original metal casters in place. The bottom has been given two coats of polyurethane to make it overall clean for placement anywhere inside the home. Our nice refinished trunks have been making great lifetime lasting gifts for loved ones on special occasions. We have been selling them on ebay for about fifteen years now. Many of our wonderful customers now have more than one trunk in their home. We appreciate all of the purchases over the years and hope to have lot of new customers in the future. We feel that we have some of the nicest trunks available and you should go ahead and compare ours to others. We also are pretty sure that the new owner of this nice charming American made dome top trunk will enjoy lots and lots of nice compliments from anyone who happens to see it in your beautiful home. Thank you.
