This antique, 18th century trunk was crafted of hefty planks of walnut and oak. The base displays nice moulding and bracket feet. It is painted, overall, with subtly colorful floral designs, charmingly executed on a blue-green background. But the interior is a visual knockout, with a floral design on bright red, with wonderful, hand forged iron strap hinges. The brass, batwing side handles are of the period. This is a lovely storage piece and makes a nice coffee table.
