Rare Antique Humpback Barrel Top Chest Oak Pine Leather & Brass Travel Trunk

Antique Pine Travel Chest

Circa 1870

I am delighted to offer you this beautiful, rare, humpback chest.

********************************************

This rare Antique chest is a real feature piece. This chest has been gently cleaned down by an eco friendly process & a bees wax polish has been applied to the exterior which gives the chest a slight sheen and protects the old wood.

Made of pine with oak & metal banding. Ornate metal corner protectors & stud detailing. To the front are two ornate clasps and a brass central lock (no key but a good locksmith maybe able to help you out here). To each end are the original strong leather handles for easy lifting and carrying. To the tin lined bottom are two pine runners that keep the chest slightly off the floor.

Opening the lid reveals a clean interior. The original paper lining has been removed. You could always line the chest with pretty paper to cover the original nail ends or to varnish the wood.

Two lid stays have been attached to hold the lid open whilst you rummage through all the things you can fill this chest with.
