The trunk features a moulded frieze and the whole stands on its original Georgian bracket feet. The back of the trunk retains its original panels along with the original floor. Overall, this trunk boasts a lovely deep rich scumbled finish, colour and patination.
This item would look great in a variety of rooms from the hallway, to the living room or bedroom as an ottoman or blanket box at the foot of the bed.
This beautiful piece boasts a red-brown colour. As it boasts the original polish, it has a fantastic colour and patination; this can only be achieved through age and years of care and cleaning it has received.
The trunk is in excellent original condition. The trunk retains its original scumbled finish to the exterior. Nominal old use marks to the top, external sides and leading edges, but nothing significant considering the age of the item (see photos). The interior is clean, dry, and usable. The bass hinges are in good working condition. The trunk retains its original lid, floor, legs, sides and back. The trunk also retains its original steel working lock (with key). The trunk is solid in joint; it does not wobble on the floor and is ready to use.
