1800s Antique Hump Back Stars Design Seaman's Small Trunk:
up for consideration is a small, Beautiful Embossed STARS Humpback Victorian trunk.
measurements are about 24" long x 16" wide x 15" tall. weight about 17 lbs.
it came with two others out of an estate of a baltimore, md. ship's captain. some say these small trunks were also for coachmen/wagoneers.it's in salty, 'been there, used-not-abused' original condition - NOT glitzed up or frou-frou'd for some decorator showroom - in the process destroying it's wonderful patina and character! you can almost smell the salt sea air!
other than honest wear, surviving probably a great many voyages during the days of sail, it's in nice condition. one side handle's missing, the other's inside. some wood is split and the metal has light surface rust.
It is a very handsome 'patriotic' star trunk that's in great shape for over 100 years of use!
note again the size - you mt. want to pick it up if you're in the wash dc., va. or md. suburbs.$18
