  A DELIGHTFUL, EYE CATCHING, AMERICAN MADE, FLAT TOP (SLIGHT ARCH), ART NOUVEAU INFLUENCE, "CLINTON WALL TRUNK" PAT 1890. WALL TRUNKS CAN BE OPENED WITHOUT THE NEED TO MOVE THE CHEST FORWARD FOR LID CLEARANCE. CLEAN EXAMPLES ARE BECOMING QUITE HARD TO FIND.

THIS WILL MAKE AN EXCITING ADDITION TO ANY ROOM.

IT COMES WITH THE ORIGINAL WORKING  LOCK WITH KEY (MAY NEED SOME FIDDLING TO OPERATE). IT IS COVERED WITH VERY ATTRACTIVE PATTERNED TIN AND IS TRIMMED WITH CLINCHED BURNISHED STEEL BINDINGS. THE BEAUTIFUL ART NOUVEAU STYLE SLAT CLAMPS (PAT 1880) HAVE BEEN BURNISHED BRIGHT FOR A STUNNING EFFECT.  THE METALWORK, SLAT CLAMPS, LATCHES AND LOCK HAVE BEEN HAND BURNISHED FOR A RICH NATURAL LOOK & ANTIQUE QUALITY.

THIS CHEST IS IN GREAT SHAPE AND SHOULD HOLD UP FOR YEARS TO COME.

A NOTE ABOUT MY TRUNKS: I CHOOSE MY TRUNKS FOR THEIR INTERESTING QUALITIES, AESTHETICS AND ORIGINAL QUALITY OF MANUFACTURE. I MAY OPT FOR A COMPLETE RESTORATION, OR I MAY CHOOSE TO PRESERVE THE ORIGINALITY OF THE THE ANTIQUE. IN SOME CASES I WILL COMPLETELY RE-INVENT A PIECE.  EACH PIECE IS A UNIQUE AND INDIVIDUAL SIGNED WORK AS WELL AS A TRUE ANTIQUE. MOST TRUNKS CHOSEN WILL BE FROM THE LATE VICTORIAN ERA FROM THE CIVIL WAR TO ABOUT 1895. THIS IS MY CRAFT AND OFTEN MY ART WHICH I HAVE DEVOTED NEARLY 40 YEARS TO PERFECTING. I WILL STAND BEHIND THE QUALITY OF MY WORK AND ALWAYS PLACE MY PATRONS IN HIGH ESTEEM. I HAVE NO SET SYSTEM FOR PROCESSING MY PIECES. EACH ONE IS ASSESSED FOR IT'S FINEST QUALITIES AND THEN I USE MY ARTISTIC LICENSE TO HOPEFULLY BRING THOSE QUALITIES INTO THE LIGHT. IF YOU ARE SIMPLY LOOKING FOR A REFINISHED TRUNK YOU CAN CERTAINLY FIND ONE CHEAPER. BUT PLEASE BEAR IN MIND THAT YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR. I INVITE CLOSE SCRUTINY AND COMPARISON TO OTHERS. IF YOU APPRECIATE MY WORK AND CHOOSE TO INVEST IN MY TRUNKS I AM SURE THAT YOU WILL RECEIVE OUTSTANDING VALUE AND SATISFACTION. ALSO PLEASE UNDERSTAND THAT I DO NOT DESTROY THE VALUE OF AN ANTIQUE TRUNK BY THESE PROCESSES. IF AN ITEM HAS EQUAL OR GREATER VALUE IN IT'S ORIGINAL STATE IT WILL BE PRESERVED THAT WAY, IT WOULD BE FOOLISH TO DO OTHERWISE.
