Here for sale is a stunning and original antique travel trunk wardrobe made by the renowned maker John Pound & Co, London complete with original travel labels and fitted interior.

Sir John Pound was the son of the founder, taking over the business in the 1860s. By 1871 the company was one of the biggest of its kind in the UK, and operated from 3 factories and had stores all across central London. He became Lord Mayor of London and was subsequently created Baronet in 1915. The company is still in operation today.

Great antique item with lots of travel labels and history. Made from Vellum calfskin and indicate its high quality. The word Vellum is derived from the Latin word vitulinum meaning "made from calf", leading to Old French vélin, "calfskin".


Shows signs of wear and tear as it is old and has been used, but only adds to its character. Great decorative item which would look fantastic in any home or business interior.
