Nice Refinished Antique Dome Top Steamer Trunk With Working Lock With Key and Interior Tray

 Here is a lovely refinished dome top or arch top steamer trunk or travel trunk from the late 1800's to around 1900.  Here are the trunk's dimensions: from left to right across the front is 24 1/4 inches, from floor to top is approximately 14 inches, and from front edge to back edge is 14 inches.  We removed some of the metal from between the slat boards to expose the wood underneath.  The trunk appears t be made up of poplar base wood which are rough cut boards.  These boards show the saw blade marks from the saw mill since they were not planed down to a smooth texture.  The outer slat boards appear to be oak or ash.  The wood has been finished with three coats of polyurethane by Minwax to preserve the wood.  This one was missing the lock when we received it and we have given it an older replacement lock which is signed.  It says, "Eagle Lock Co Terryville Conn U.S.A.".  This replacement lock comes with the proper key and does work correctly.  A lot of doll collectors and collectors of coins and Civil War items have purchased this smaller sized trunk to store their collectible items inside.  If you have a teddy bear or doll collection, you can display those items in and on the trunk with the lid in the open position.  The side handles were missing and have been replaced with Amish made black leather stitched straps.  We do obtain all of our leather products for these trunks from an Amish man in an Amish community near our home here in Pennsylvania.  The front latches are original and do work properly and they have been remounted with screws.  There has been a couple of areas of metal patchwork done on this trunk.  One area is at the top left side of the lid.  A piece of metal was missing and we have put in a piece to cover this area.  A close up picture of this area has been shown.  We are calling this an arch top since the sides of the top are the same height as the center of the top.  On a dome top, the center of the dome is higher in height than the sides.  Anyhow, going to the interior, it comes with a nice early divided tray that rests at the top edge.  You can store collectibles and personal belongings in this tray, then lift it up and put more items deep inside the belly of the trunk.  The tray and interior wood have been given two coats of polyurethane.  Considering how old this trunk is, the interior is in good condition.  A nice picture of a Victorian girl posing while holding her pet cat has been added to the underside of the top.  Going to the exterior bottom underneath the trunk, it still has the four metal casters on the bottom and they do still spin.  We have given the bottom a coat of polyurethane to make the trunk overall cleaner for placement inside your home.  This beautiful arch top trunk will make a nice gift for that loved one in your life who enjoys collecting refinished furniture pieces for the house.  We really encourage you to read some of our thousand plus happy customers' nice compliments about the beautiful trunks they have purchased from us over the past twelve years or so on ebay, in our positive feedback section.  We are currently finishing up on a nice batch of unique trunks.  These trunks have been selling very well throughout the year and even quicker during the holiday season which is not too far into the future.  The two of us spend a lot of time on each trunk.  We hope our efforts are appreciated and we try to make each trunk as noce as possible.  There are lots of trunks available on the internet.  In our opinion, some are quite treacherous looking.  You can choose whatever one you like.  Hopefully one will be from our nice selection.  Thank you.
