The trunk is made from pine and has hardwood bands running along the top, front and rear, the trunk has been decorated with lots of small metal domed studs, there are two decorative catches to the front which are in good working order and a lovely solid brass lock in the middle, there is no key, there is a metal handle below the central lock, there are good strong carry handles to either side of the trunk,the trunk still retains its original hinges which are in good working order, the trunk sits on all four of its original little castor wheels.
The interior of the trunk has been freshly lined with pages from an old book making it nice and clean and ready to be used immediately to store away all your items and also makes the trunk rather unique, there is a metal stay fitted to help support the lid when opened, the trunk has been waxed and polished to a nice even finish and helps to bring out the grain and tone of the wood.
