A gorgeous Antique trunk or storage chest.
It is a medium size so could have possibly been a cabin trunk though it does not retain any covering and the wood has been later finished with a dark stain.
It has a flat top and rounded corners, it is bound with iron fittings, lacquered black, it has a clasp fitting on the front for a lock to hold it shut, fixtures such as these came into design in the later 19th century.
It has an iron chain inside affixed to the lid and handles either side for ease of carrying.
It is made from solid pine that has been stained, it is in good condition, no cracks or splits to the wood, there is some rusting on various parts of the metal fixtures but more than commensurate with the age.
A very attractive piece and would also make a lovely storage chest.
There are no makers marks that I can find, the trunk is most likely to date from the early part of the 20th century 1901-1905 due to its construction and size.
