Description

A splendid old well travelled steamer or railway chest, found in very good used condition.
The original grass green (!) canvas, now faded to a mid sage green, is not damaged anywhere.
The elm wood supports and a multitude of hand stitched chestnut brown leather straps, reinforced corner patches and brass strengtheners all showing a handsome vintage look.
Added bonus is the funky railway travelling sticker on one of the sides, displaying a journey's destination from Paris-Nord to Angleterre, Londres, via Dunkerque, fab!
The interior retains the original black and white pin striped material, but does have signs of age, mostly little round rings of rust, presumably where the brass nails ( holding the wood to the trunk ) have coloured the material in time.
Straps and carrying handles are all intact, bar the front one, just below the lock.
The lock is working, the snap slide moves well, but there is not key.
A truly genuine piece of travelling furniture, useful for storage around the house, coffee table use or TV / film prop.
Dimensions:
820mm wide
340mm high
440mm deep
