Large Vintage Steamer Trunk with Monitor Top Finish and Hardwood Banding / Slats – Perfect Early 20th Century Vibes.
The blue cover adds some colour to this travel trunk and makes a superb statement piece. The exterior is in remarkably good condition and the blue is still quite vibrant. This flat top steamer trunk is very versatile for contemporary decor.
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 excellent condition – the trunk is complete but shows a few signs of its wear and tear over the times. Some of the wooden slats underneath are rubbed – these sections took the most wear & tear as the trunks were placed down on all sorts of surfaces. Both handles are in tact and are both in great condition. All the clasps are working, if a little tight – The clasps need to be lined up top & bottom in order to close and this is best done 1 clasp at a time.
Internally, the tray is missing and age related wear and faded finishes means that the paper lining is ripped and coming away in places. There is also a name and address written, in ink on the bottom left of the lid.
