Exceptionally Beautiful Large Saratoga Grade American
Wooden Flat Top Travel Trunk from the late 19th Century

We consider this a Saratoga grade due to the high quality of construction and the amount and quality of the decorative hardware on the trunk. This would have been an expensive trunk owned by a well to do individual. This is a Rare trunk as we have not seen another trunk like this with the amount of decorative hardware that this one has. Originally this trunk had straps, and it still has the high quality metal strap corners, although we have left the straps off for convenience of access to the interior. The oak slats compliment the wonderful solid pine wood which has been stained to a rich honey pine Patina. This Trunk really showcases the superb construction by the master craftsmen of the time. This trunk has been professionally restored trunk at Legacy Trunks, and is very strong and solid. The interior has been stripped to eliminate any musty odor, then cleaned inside and out, hand-sanded, and finished with multiple hand rubbed layers of Beeswax, and Lemon oil. The exterior has been stained, sealed, and had multiple coats of high quality varnish applied followed with several coats of hand rubbed beeswax. Black and Gold paint was used on the outside metal trim, all latches, and corner trim. It comes with it's original lock. This trunk is in very good condition except for some normal wear and signs of age. Once again, The color is rich! The hardware is original. This chest is very solid and well built and should hold up for another 100 years to continue its Legacy. This would make a Great table, Coffee table or accent piece for the foot of a bed.
The trunk measures 36 inches long , 21 inches wide, 24 and inches tall.
