Large Vintage Steamer Trunk with Monitor Top Finish and Metal Banding / Slats – Perfect Early 20th Century Vibes.
A few faded stickers and well worn metal slats give only a hint of this trunks travels. The flat top steamer trunk has plenty of character and is versatile in a contemporary home – It would make a perfect statement piece in any room – The inclusion of the internal tray adds to its storage capabilities.
True steamer trunks are low profile – they were brought “On Voyage” into the ships cabin and were limited to size. Any trunk larger than roughly 91 x 66 x 35cm is NOT a steamer trunk – It would be a travel trunk that was stored in the ships hold during the trip – “Not Wanted on Voyage” or “Hold” labels were placed on these types of trunks.
Overall in very good condition – the trunk is complete but shows a few signs of its wear and tear over the times. The metal slats have suffered a few knocks and chips during the years, but nothing beyond what is to be expected.
These sections took the most wear & tear as the trunks were placed down on all sorts of surfaces.
The leather handles are still whole and complete, but 1 of them is in worse condition than the other – these trunks were stood on their ends a lot and the handles got worn as a result.
All the clasps are working, if a little tight. Internally, the tray is in good condition and age related wear and faded finishes means that the paper lining is ripped and coming away in places.
Dimensions: 92 x 52 x 32cm
