This old distressed olive green vintage travel trunk from the 1930s has experienced many trains journey's...and perhaps a few ocean liners' trips too.
If you look carefully, you can see some of the text on the old travel tags have French writing. Clearly, there have been some oversea Channel journeys involved - over to mainland Europe.
Old Vintage Travel Trunk size: W85cm x D47cm H31cm.
This old trunk is fabricated from compressed fibreboard. This was a very modern and innovative material from the middle of the last century. The corner pieces and straps are from brown leather.
Internally, the trunk has seen better days. It shows signs of extensive wear and staining. Alternatively, why not use the trunk as an authentic rustic visual prop for the home. As a table-top surface, the trunk would create an excellent side table for the living room or bed-side table for the bedroom.
The trunk is old. Its surface finish has taken on a lovely distressed patina - authentic ageing at its finest!
