Shipper: RICK HILL (336-848-1214)
Entirely crafted by hand in Scandinavia and dated 1842 (?), this immigrant trunk has a picturesque signature of the original owner.
Hand planing marks, dovetailed corner joints and wooden pegs instead of nais on the top show the work of an expert carpenter. The original finish and worn painting and graining make for beautiful antique patina. Waxed and buffed, only an occasional wipe with a soft dry cloth is needed to maintain its warm glow. Wrought iron handles and hinges are original, the lock is missing on this European country furniture. Size is 40" long, 21" deep and 28" tall.
