Childs 1800's Vintage Camel Back Steamer Trunk
- Source: eBay
This is a gr8 vintage camel back trunk. It is definitely original. The size of it tells me it is a childs trunk. From the bottom to the top of trunk (not counting the lid) is 9 3/4"....the lid gives it an additional 4 3/4" in heighth. From the front to the back is 12 1/2"...side to side is 21 3/4". The trunk is made of wood, with the original hardware. The latches are all t, but no key.The original paper lines the trunk...it has wear and lines of stains along the corners. The trunk has been painted red and gold...Looking at it closely, I would say these are the original colors. The bottom is intact and shows no sign of weakness, but somebody has attached a piece of sheet metal to the bottom, to give it extra support. The lid has a division panel in it...I have seen a lot of these trunks displayed on their sides, using the division panel as a shelf. They look very nice with vintage items displayed in them. This would be very nice displaced as it is, or re-finished. These small trunks are hard to find, especially as structurely sound as this one is.Check out my other items...a lot of nice, vintage things!! I combine shipping, when possible.
