The delightful original paint remains intact on this large trunk and is a wonderful example of the simple folk art style found in eastern Europe in the 1800's. Notice the date of 1870 in the top central "box" while the other 5 painted squares show off a traditional flower motif with red, yellow, and green. The brown/earth tone background paint is worn in areas revealing the natural pine wood below. The large wrought iron handles on the side make it easier to move/transport and it rests on 4 solid feet. An age related crack/separation exists on the top but does not impact the strength/function. Unique to this trunk is the large lower drawer, which runs smoothly. The entire trunk has been cleaned, restored and waxed inside and out making it ready to use and enjoy.
