Fabulous, early Victorian wooden trunk covered in brown leather and decorated with metal studs that spell the initials S. P. No key, as is usual. The interior is completely lined with newspaper contemporary to the box. I was able to identify the paper as being from an 1853 issue of Gleason’s Pictorial, so the trunk dates to around that time. Interior is very clean for the trunk’s age, although the leather shows heavy wear. Refer to photos carefully for condition.

The box measures about 18” x 10” x 10”. Ships free domestic, fully insured.
