Antique Original Painted Swedish Dome Top Trunk Dated 1818

Traditional Swedish folk art painting is a unique, hand-painted treasure and this highly decorative domed top trunk is a perfect example of Swedish country craftsmanship. The paint is all original, and gently distressed over many years of use. Notice the enticing color of a soft, faded blue/green while a traditional floral wreath topped by a bow of ribbons accents the front panels. The wrought iron handles, straps and hinges add to the aged character of the trunk. Unique to this trunk is a train travel ticket still attached to one side. The date of 1818 and monogram of EMD indicate this may have been a wedding or dowry present. Note slight age-related separation of planks along the domed top. This heavy oak trunk has been restored and waxed, so it is clean and ready to use. One key included which is needed to open the top.
