The soft blue paint is all original on this lovely dome top trunk from Sweden. The monogram and date of 1835 are painted on the front indicating it was likely a wedding present for a couple begining their life together. Unique to this trunk is also the affixed iron date of 1761; this may be the original date the trunk was crafted and then later painted over as a gift to a family member. Notice the beautiful hand-painted garland of flowers and flourishes that adorn the entire trunk and incredible wrought iron details. The interior includes a small lidded area to the right that was used to store private articles so they would not get lost amidst the larger blankets or items stored in the chest. This heavy oak trunk has been restored and waxed, it is sturdy and ready to be used and enjoyed. Any cracks, nicks, scratches and signs of wear are commensurate with generations of use.
