Small Antique European Leather Tabletop Trunk

This decorative table top trunk is from Europe and dates to the end of the 19th century. It has diagonal, patterned ground motifs on its domed top. Small stamped florets are at each center surrounded by tiny nailheads. The front of the trunk is decorated with two nailhead circles flanking the lock, key and latch.  On the sides are metal handles on plates with a nailhead periphery on the leather panel. The back is plain except for the nailheads surrounding the periphery of the leather panel. At each of the corners are two metal hinges attaching both sides. The inner portion of the trunk is lined with red felt as is the outside bottom of the trunk. This beautiful little trunk was probably used as a valuable document holder on a desk. Today it could be used to hold anything of value. Lock and key are in working order.

CONDITION: Good condition with minor rubs and nicks to leather (see photos). Hardware possibly refinished at some point
