Also known as a camel-back, this beautiful dome-topped antique travel trunk is one of Scaramanga's favourites. The warm colours featured throughout the piece creates a homely and rich style that will fit with any decor in your home.
With over 10-years of experience, we've not sourced many trunks more desirable and well-presented than this wonderful piece. Storage art in fine form! The blend of vintage and traditional style creates a fantastic focal point.
130-years ago this piece would have been commissioned and used as a personal piece of travel luggage and storage. Imagine horse-drawn carriages, steam trains and ocean liners to get a reference when, why and how it was used.
Today this trunk still works as a clothes storage space - perhaps along the hallway or at the end of your double bed. Placing this wonderful piece at the front of your home will guarantee to catch guests eyes as soon as they enter your home.
Considering its long life, this trunk is in wonderful condition - obviously one very careful owner. The exterior surface has an excellent patina: the wooden banding, the metal binding and leather surface.
This style of antique travel trunk works very well as a visual prop and would make an excellent statement piece for the home or merchandising environment. You can also treat your kids to a new pirate chest for their toy room to store all of their favourite toys. A great way to add vintage style to your home as well as encourage the kids to tidy up.
Antique Travel Trunk size: W88cm x D50cm x H65cm.
