This beautiful piece boasts a mellow brown oak 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.
This antique oak trunk is in excellent original condition. Nominal old use marks to the top, external sides and leading edges, but nothing significant considering the age of the item (see photos). The trunk has been French polished by hand in our workshop to a professional standard. The interior is clean, dry, and usable. The original steel strap hinges are in good working condition. We believe the solid brass carrying handles to be original. 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.
