Seller: hazelmac2 (593) 100%, Location: Congleton, Ships to: Free Local Pickup, Item: 351917827753 0 0 0 Victorian wood banded leather covered dome topped trunk, pirate’s, blanket chest with metal fittings in superb condition. Bought by us around 30 years ago, we used this antique barrel topped trunk at the end o our bed, storing bedding until we downsized. It is strikingly attractive, with what appears to be tooled leather between the bands. Bear in mind it is well over a hundred years old, so has the knocks you would expect from its age (see photographs), but, it has not been messed around with, so is in excellent original condition. The wood is all in good condition, the metal parts are not damaged or rusty and both handles are fine as the photographs hopefully show. At the back on small part of the leather has become dry and fragile, but it could all do with feeding with leather food. Inside, the trunk is paper lined and is complete with the tray, which adds to its storage potential. We have never had a key It measures 91cm wide, 47cm across and 58cm deep at its tallest point. Apparently, these dome-topped trunks were made to protect their contents as they had to be stowed at the top of a pile of luggage, as no other trunks could be put on top! We are reluctantly selling this but no longer have space. It will fit in the back of most hatchbacks. If you wanted it picked up by a courier (UPS would cost about £15 plus VAT), it would have to be wrapped in bubble wrap, which we could do, but wouldn’t be responsible for any damage caused in transit. A roll, plus tape would cost about £10. Product Type: Chests, Original/Reproduction: Original, Style: Victorian, Age: 1800-1899, Material: Leather
