Tulips were a favorite flower motif used on painted furniture throughout the European countryside, and are seen beautifully displayed here on the hand-painted trunk from Sweden. The two monograms and date of 1789 indicate it was likely a wedding present to a young couple starting their life together. Notice the incredible wrought iron details, including the corner straps, side handles and latch to allow for a lock. This trunk is part of our “un-restored” collection and is being sold in "as is, used" original condition; how we found it in Europe.
