In stunning condition, this classic dome-topped antique leather travel trunk is a rare Scaramanga find. We are a big fan of the traditional travel trunk and believe this piece is one of the finest we’ve sourced in over 10-years. Give your home that much needed vintage feel this autumn with our brand new travel trunk.
No vintage or antique influenced room would look authentic without a classic dome-top travel trunk like this. It would make a fascinating feature for the home – perhaps at the end of a double-bed or along a hallway wall. It would also be a great way to store all of your family board games and essentials to have for special occasions. The blend of warm colours will also bring a rich style to any room in your home this autumn.
The surface is decorated with etched tan-coloured leather, wooden banding with brass trimmings and black metal bindings. Clearly, the skilled craftsman of this trunk knew his trade. Dating from 1880 / 1890 this style of trunk would have travelled across the Atlantic from ports like Liverpool, Portsmouth and Glasgow. A great story to tell all admirers.
Internally, there are various compartments both integral to the trunk's lid and lift-out trays. This is a great way to keep certain home essentials in separate places. This is also a trunk you can still use today for storing clothes and linen – its original use!
This is not just a wonderful storage solution. A purely decorative item, this trunk would make a perfect prop for a shop or other merchandising spaces.
This is a great statement piece that we are confident you will be proud to showcase in any room in your home.
