Snappy Auctions Payment - Shipping - Returns - About Us Antique Vintage Victorian Oak Steamer Trunk Chest 1800s
You are bidding on an Antique Victorian Oak Steamer Trunk from the 1800's. This trunk could probably tell some tales. It's in pretty good condition considering it's age. It has leather straps and brass hardware. The casters are all intact. It has a dome top. The compartments inside are decorated cardboard with Victorian scenes. (see photos). By it's appearance, it has never been refinished. Size: 22" high x 28" wide x 18" deep We found a vintage sales receipt in one of the compartments that states: Bought of S. A. Hoyt, Established 1868, North Long Branch, Wholesale and Retail Dealer in Fancy and Staple Groceries, Provisions, Dry Goods, Hardware, Crockery, &c. Due to it's age, t is naturally, some wear and flaws to this piece of history! Overall it is in good working condition. The outside of the trunk has a few long cracks. They run along the surface and do not go deep to the other side. The outer finish of the wood is original and very worn. The original leather side straps are cracked and worn and one has broken. The inside compartments are sound but the paper decorations are somewhat worn. T is some water damage and a long crack at the bottom floor of the trunk. It looks as if the inside of the trunk was lined in paper. The paper is now dry and cracking in spots.
