Early 20th C Vintage Black Steamer Travel Trunk Cool Shipping Labels

£60.00 or Best Offer 18d, £12.00 Shipping, 14-Day Returns

Seller: welove20c (185) 100%, Location: Bruton, Ships to: GB, Item: 201728390277 Lovely old vintage travel trunk in very good condition for its age. It has some very cool labels on one end of the trunk and fabulous leather handles. The underneath of the trunk has three wooden batons. The 2 outer locking catches still work well. The central lock is unfortunately broken. The interior of the trunk is very clean and fresh looking with some smaller compartments which can be seen in the photos. Its a very useful size as it is fairly low in height so would be perfect for under bed storage. It could also be easily adapted into a coffee table with the addition of some nice old casters or a set of Dansette legs to raise it slightly. Measurements: 92 cm W x 53 cm D x 21 cm H It is structurally very sound. The corners are bound with leather to give additional strength and protection. Please do study the photos closely for a full condition report. Due to its age and the nature of its function, it has the odd mark, knock and blemish here and there however these only add to its charm and authenticity. It must have traveled quite some distance in it's lifetime judging by the labels. One is a P&O Cabin label for the SS Ranpura. The SS Ranpura was a British passenger and cargo carrying ocean liner built in Newcastle for the Peninsular and Oriental Steam Navigation company in 1924. The owner of the trunk was a Mr F Belban as his name is written on one of the labels and also his initials F B appear on the top of the trunk. This trunk truly is a fabulous and characterful piece of 20th Century history and also very functional. Please note that the delivery price is for mainland UK only. Local collection would be most welcome too. I would also be happy to deliver the trunk personally to you if you are within a 30 mile radius of Bruton, Somerset for a price of 40 pence per mile. Product Type: Chests, Original/Reproduction: Original, Age: 1900-1950
