1880's antique tin and wood dome top aka curved top large, heavy, and well built original trunk, made by the Barnard Brothers, Manufacturers of Trunks and Bags, Clark's New Block, Worcester, MASS, as per the original label on the inside top. All the metal hardware is intact, including the original metal wheels, which were first put on trunks in the 1840's. The female part of the front lock needs to be nailed with replicas of antique nails. Also, there is no key, as easy job for a true locksmith, not just a keymaker. Two two side leather handles need replacing and yes, the hardware for these is there, too. The wood could use a little TLC, sanding and coating. The tin aka rolled sheet steel, would benefit from a splash of naval jelly, some sandpaper, steel wool,or whatever else works. Most trunks on the market do not have the orignal label and most are amateurishly restored and ruined by people who think they know what they do but are really not knowlegable or skilled in trunk restoration. These both jobs actually decrease the value as they basically ruin the original surfaces. You are welcome to buy this trunk as per my description, restore it yourself, do nothing to it, or have a true professional do a really professional job. The choice is all yours. I will ship this to Canada or overseas but the shipping and handling will be very expensive. Satisfaction guaranteed.
