This enchanting trunk has the original soft tones of blue and green that have gently aged over time and shows off the circular garlands of flowers that decorate the front. The trunk is painted with two red and white floral wreaths on the front - initials in one and the date 1818 in the other. It may have served as a traditional dowry or wedding gift. This large hand-crafted trunk has  the original hardware, hand-wrought iron strap hinges and corner supports.  There is ample  storage inside with a small covered utility box to the left wall. A wax finish was used inside and out gently enhancing the painted finish. Please take a moment to enlarge the photos and examine the details up close.
