A very early antique French travelling chest/trunk. Original leather covering, original brass studding. Beautiful lock plate and escutcheons. Dating from 1750 this trunk has history and the scars to show for over 250 years of use. To the rear is a faint remnant of a Paris label. A fabulous looking piece of furniture that can be used for decorative purposes. The rear of the trunk is not in great shape and the base and insides of the trunk are poor. However this does not detract from the use or look of the piece and could be used at the end of a bed or as coffee table etc. Please ask if you would like more photographs of condition. In better condition we would retail for £1,200.
Great for end of bed or coffee table.
