This is a very impressive leather steamer trunk produced by Malle Auto BF Paris a French travel trunk maker. This highly decorative steamer trunk has had an exciting history that will create a fantastic vintage style to any room in your home. 

This wonderfully historic trunk is fabricated from vellum (a form of leather). The trunk is in a reasonable condition, especially considering it is well over 100-years old. The distressed look reinforces the history of the piece and adds endless personality to your home. 

This style of travel luggage was originally developed to be used as a cabin trunk - the equivalent of today's carry-on luggage. At the time, they were low-profile and small enough to fit under the berths of trains or in the cabin of a steamer, hence their name.

With the advent of the car, this trunk was designed for road trips. Although the style is very obviously designed for trains and cruise liners.

A lovely vintage leather piece exemplifying a by-gone age: high-quality, well fabricated, heavy-duty...built to last.

There is a small hole to the leather on the top panel which is 2cm x 1cm in size. The hole can be seen in the images and shows the detail of the wood below.

Steamer Trunk by Malle Auto size: W92cm x D52cm x H32cm.

Why embrace the vintage era of automobiles, steam trains an ocean-liners with this fancy looking trunk? At the end of a bed or used as a display 'table' in a living room or hall, this item with it brass trimmings and wooden banding is sure to impress. You can also use this unique trunk as a stylish way to store away your blankets.

The distressed surface is this steamer trunk is authentic and reflects it long life and journeys that it undertook.
