Well made  and looked after Vintage (age unclear) Asian trunk, made from pine which has been painted in a chinoiserie style, original brass fittings. In very good order, old repairs to the interior hinge points. Some loss of the painted paper to the back of the box and inside. Some loss of paint to the top surface commensurate with age and use. Bulk of the decoration to the sides intact. Brass fittings complete and intact.
My sense is that these trunks are ornamental/for light storage/coffee table etc and not for carrying  any significant weight inside.

If you have a query about this piece; its condition, price, delivery, postage etc please do not hesitate to ask, we are always happy to answer questions and accommodate where at all possible.

Buyers are always welcome to collect this item from Baldock, North Herts, SG7 6DB if they wish to.
