Hand carved in Sweden around 1840, this country pine immigrant trunk or chest has a slightly curved top, but still makes a picturesque coffee table.

The carpenter's expertise is shown by wooden pegs instead of nails and hand cut corner dovetail joints. There is a wonderful hand wrought iron lock that still works with the key, but we have removed it because it locks automatically when the lid is closed. It is included and can be reattached if desired. Wrought iron hinges are also original.

There are traces of old paint and warm antique patina, waxed and buffed so that all that is needed to maintain its warm patina is an occasional wipe with a soft dry cloth. Inside this authentic European furniture is a covered compartment for valuables.

Size is 30" long, 17" deep and 16 1/2" tall.
