Beautifully designed and highly portable, this French domed top trunk was constructed by hand with a wooden body enveloped in chocolate-colored leather. The trunk, which dates to the 1700s, also features meticulously placed nailheads forming intricate clusters like lozenges, roundels, and volutes. Its interior is a visual delight, featuring yellow upholstery adorned with vivid red flowers and green leaves, while the main compartment is lined in solid yellow. With drop-down iron handles attached to elegantly shaped mounts, this trunk is as functional as it is beautiful, making it perfect for small storage needs in any space, whether it’s a bedroom, bathroom, or hallway. Brass embellishments on the edges not only enhance its aesthetic appeal but also provide additional protection, ensuring that this timeless piece will be treasured for generations to come.
CONDITION: Good antique condition, with commensurate wear to leather and brass, including very light chapping and some small losses. Various missing or replaced nailheads. Some lifting to the upholstery with minor areas of discoloration. No key.
