Description

A wonderful small trunk -just like mom's.  A wooden paper covered antique doll trunk with the original pull out tray. Possibly late 1800's early 1900's.  I read that they were made for the young girl to carry her dolls accessories in a trunk just like her mother's.  This trunk has a circle design on the outer paper, trimmed in black paper.  There are two brown leather strips starting at the back of the top, across the top, and down the front. The ribbon to hold the top up is still in good condition.  The inside lining has a pretty blue leaf like swirl pattern, many trunks I have looked at have a plain lining. 

Some of the leather strips are missing or loose.  There are black leather handles on each end, the one on the left is split in the middle.  There is a latch and lock, but no key. The paper is worn in places.  The paper on the tray is worn and cracked in several spots.  The inside lining has a few cracked areas -these are mostly in the corners and sides.  The bottom is covered with the lining paper, which is quite worn.  Overall for its age, I think it is in very good condition.

Measures approx. 10 1/4 inches long, 5 inches tall, and 5 1/2 inches wide.
