Vintage Large c 1890 Oak Steamer Trunk - Looks Great - Antique
Here is an old solid steamer trunk probably from the late 1800s or early 1900s. The outside is in exceptional condition. You could take it just the way it is and use it for a beautiful conversation piece coffee table. You need to see it to appreciate the colors of the wood and metal. I do not believe this was ever restored..
This measures 23.5 inches tall, 33 inches wide, and 21.25 inches deep. There are 4 original metal rollers on the bottom. The leather handles are missing. The front latches are intact and work perfect. The lid hinges work smoothly. There is no key for the lock. The wood this is made of is Oak. The trunk has a metal bottom with no rust, and the wood is solid with no signs of decay. This original liner is on the inside bottom portion, but the top liner is missing.
It looks great the way it is, but if you would put a glass on the top, you would have a fantastic coffee table. Reline it, and you would have a great storage chest.
