Antique Original Blue Painted Small Trunk dated 1788 from Sweden

This exceptional trunk is a wonderful example of Swedish craftsmanship and a tremendous find. The lovely patina of the original teal blue paint has softened and distressed over countless generations of use. Note the monogram of B&M and date 1788 inside painted garland of flowers, indicating this was likely a wedding or anniversary gift. The hand-wrought iron handles and oversized key eschuchon are all original to the small chest. This small trunk has been restored and waxed, so it is strong and ready to be used and enjoyed.
