Good Luck Bidders!!!!!!
Up for Bid is A Gorgeous True Steamer Trunk Wrapped Completely All Around in Damier Pattern Canvas!! This Trunk Has Been in the Same family for over 80+ years and has been untouched in the attic of this home for 70+ years!!! This Is a Truly Beautiful Trunk Completely Intact and All Original from Brass Nails to the Tray inside!!!! This trunk has never been cleaned or restored in any way!!!!! You Can Tell the Amazing Workmanship put into making this Hand Crafted Marvel. It is Large with Enough Room For Everything and Yet the Convenient Size of 35"L 20"D 12"H. The wood all around is as completely Solid and as Strong as the very day it was hand assembled. Every Brass Nail, Handle, Caches, And Lock is made to last forever on this Trunk it seems because time has affected it so little all these years. The interior of the Trunk is Unaffected by any weather and is Fine and Clean minus a stain. The Tray Is Completely Clean and Fine and the Compartments are in Impeccable Shape and Very Convenient in Size and Shape. DETAILED PICTURES ABOVE!!! The Smell inside the Trunk is AMAZING . I wasn't Around in the Late 1800's, not even close but its Super Weird, when I Open this Trunk and the smell hits my nose I Automatically feel like I Am in 1890. Serious, this scent is entirely new to me but i know its the smell of the Old World. It Sounds Crazy but The New Lucky Owner Will Understand Instantly. Its one of those things never to be found anywhere else in the world unless preserved airtight from the late 1800's. Honestly can't really describe it. Continuing sorry.... Some of the leather trim is cracked and needs re hydrating and a few ribbon pieces are missing. These are the only things "wrong" with this Beautiful Trunk. Also i do not have the key but the Lock is open. Lock has the number T11O its seems. The only other things i was able to find on the Trunk was the small initials S.J. on a front piece on the trunk and The Patent date of May 3, 1887 on the Sophisticated Brass Hardware behind the Trunk that holds it open. I did not find LV on any nails or Louis Vuitton anywhere on the Trunk. Another very interesting thing about this Trunk I did find out is that the Brass Handles on the side and the Brass handle in front are all Spring Activated to Return to Original Position Once Released. Thought that was very Smart and Luxurious being around the year 1887.
This is a unique opportunity to Own a Truly Stunning Piece!!!!!!
