Description A fantastic travel trunk from the first quarter of the 20th century, this vibrant leather-bound trunk is of the highest quality. It is unmarked other than the locks, both being heavy brass fixtures with latching tabs that operate beautifully and release with the shifting of a round brass button, these cold-stamped "ENGLISH LEVER". The raw natural leather has developed a gorgeous waxy patina, both in the top-grain and in the vegetable-tanned straps. Brass throughout has also grown a rich coloration full of variety and silky texture from years of oxidization. The top opens to reveal an upholstered interior.

While unmarked, the level of quality in the trunk is exceptional and on par with some of the best branded trunks of the period.

Measurements: 18" D x 22" W x 22" H
