A recent purchase from La Belle France, this charming little trunk will add panache to your doll display. It is made of wood overlaid with midnight blue velveteen and further decorated with Dresden paper trims. It has a non-functioning lock. Inside, the lid and base are both upholstered with pale pink sateen and silk covered buttons - now faded in color. The sides of the interior are lined with paper, as is the bottom of the trunk. The papers are showing some losses, along with two small areas of the Dresden trim missing on the outside. The upholstery on the interior shows a bit of surface dust, though it has been brushed as clean as possible. Overall, it is an elegant little piece, and well-worthy of display in a fine vignette with a variety of antique dolls.
The trunk measures 4 x 2 1/2 x 2 1/8" (10 x 6.2 x 5.2 cm).
