Enormous Antique Trunk

Enormous Antique Trunk

500.00

I absolutely love this piece, its developed such a beautiful softened finish to its surface which is such a contrast to the highly polished, rich red lacquer it would originally have been. The finish is completely original and has now dulled to a reddish brown and worn on the top surface over the last couple of Centuries into a truly stunning piece. 

I love the scale of this Trunk its hard to show how big she is in the photos but i've done my best. Originally from China and probably made of Elm.

The brass hardware sits beautifully next to the worn reddish trunk. It is missing the brass section of the backplate to the locking panel but other than that it is complete. The trunk is joined with large dovetails and, given its age, is in excellent condition.

There is one split to the wooden top as shown in the photographs, there are a couple of water marks down the back of the trunk too.  It has had wood worm in the past which we have treated to ensure it is dormant , this was mostly to the underside of the base as shown in the photographs but this has been treated and is not effecting it structurally and not really seen unless you turn the whole trunk upside down.

Measuring 165cm long x 68cm deep x 65cm tall
