Antique 1856 Swedish Immigrant Trunk

This is a beautiful piece of American History. When Immigrants would come from other countries to make a home in America, they would often bring all of their belongings in just one trunk. Don't forget...we are quite spoiled today, unlike us, they could actually fit what they needed to live in just one trunk. This one appears to be Swedish judging by the folk art work which includes flowers and foliage. On the front of the trunk is a clue to whom it originally belonged to...the initials LOS and the date of 1856. It is comprised of pine planks and hand wrought iron hardware. The lock is fully functional and we do have the original very interesting key. The interior of this trunk is very clean and has no odors of any kind. The corners all have very primitive hand dove-tailed joinery. These trunks are great for storage, I use several trunks in my home for extra blankets, towels, or guest sheets. They work well at the foot of a bed, in a hallway, entryway or guest bedroom. We will deliver this to your door free anywhere within the 48 contiguous states. The measurements are as follows: 27" High x 23" Deep x 47.5" Wide.
