Item:303518299939For sale today is a very nicely restored smaller size antique humpback trunk and the restoration turned out very well. I did not find any patent dates on the trunk and based on 50 years experience restoring trunks I would date this trunk to the 1880's which makes this awesome old humpback as much as a 140 years old - a true antique. This trunk was structurally sound when the restoration started and the wood bottom is in good solid condition, has had multiple coats of clear applied and the two original bottom slats.The trunk has the two original hinges which are HD, tight and work well. There are 20 pieces of original polished hardware and has the original center lock which has been polished - no key. Both the original mechanical latches are fancy, heavy duty, tight and one works poorly and one works with effort. There are 9 original solid oak slats in a golden oak color on the trunk. The interior has been removed and the tray is original. The metal/tin is very good condition Still has the four original metal wheels on the bottom and the trunk rolls easily. Two new black leather handles were installed with new end caps. A new metal metal lid stay was installed and the lid closes well. This awesome old humpback is 29 3/4W, 17 1/4D and 20 1/2H and weighs 36 lbs. Shipping options are local pickup(free). Fedex and greyhound. buyer's choice on shipper.
