1880's Antique Wood and Tin (rolled steel) Dome Top (slight curve) Doll Trunk TOTALLY ORIGINAL. About 90% of the trunks on the internet are not original and unfortunately, have been "restored" by professional amateurs who strip the lovely wood and metal finish aka patina and try to make them nice and shiny. Trunks, like everything else in life, are best left untouched, except if by a true professional. This charming 1880's doll trunk was most likely made in Worcester, Mass or maybe Boston, Mass. Many of the vintage trunk manufactuers were in New England with several in the city of Worcester, Mass, at that time, a thriving industrial city. The outside wood and tin and black canvas are all original. The lock is original and this trunk was stored in a fairly dry place because the lock is not the usually rusty critter you see. The inside lining is vintage and t is the telltale sign that this doll trunk is original- the inside top colourful label. The height is 7 inches, the width 17 inches, and the depth 9 inches. The inside bottom lining is missing but all the rest of the lining is intact. Being original and over 120 years old, the wood is very dry and fragile. Flat top trunks make excellent bases for glass coffee table.
