Old military iron trunk with the previous owners address on the top and the following painted on its sides: MAJOR M VICKERS RE. c/o Iraq Petroleum co ltd, P o Box 150, Tripoli, The Lebanon'. We believe the owner was in the Royal Engineers and was posted to Lebanon just after WWII to assist with civil engineers projects.
We have two virtually identical trunks. The second trunk has: 'No 2' painted on its front.
Trunks like these make great stylish storage features in retro themed rooms.
They would make a great feature in a living room, bedroom or in a study.
Size: W96 x D48 x H36
Please allow up seven working days for delivery.
Due their size / weight we are unable to accept orders for chests outside the UK.
Note: top trunk in main image. Our chests are not new or made to look old. They may have small marks and scratches on them, which are consistent with their age and original use. We feel these add to their character and appeal. Please look at the photos to get an idea of their condition. For more information see our ethical policy for wooden furniture and wooden accessories.
