This is handsome large dome top trunk dating to the 19th century.

This substantial trunk would have once been used on long sea voyages as a piece of luggage storing clothes and valuables, it is well made, solid and fairly heavy.

The main body of the trunk is made of pine which has been clad in embossed metal.

The lid and sides are strengthened with wooden banding and to either end is a leather strap handle.

The front is fitted with two catches and a central lock, sadly we don't have the key so the lock just sits over its keeper without locking into place.

The lid opens to reveal a paper lined interior with an old decorative label to the right hand side.


The trunk is in good structural condition.

There are marks of age and use, dents and ripples to the metal.

The handles and lid stays are later antique replacements and the interior has marks and tears here and there. The interior tray has been lost somewhere in time.

There are a few old wood worm holes to the front.


height- 61cms
depth- 49cms

The measurements are taken at the widest points.

VINTAGE HOUSE is a small family run business based in South Devon, selling quality hand painted vintage and antique furniture and quirky home wares.

Our interest in Vintage furnishings has been years in the making.  From an early age I spent time at auctions and antique fairs in South Devon with my mum, a passion inherited from my eccentric grandmother who had an eye for quality and a hoarders heart for beautiful things.

Subsequently what started as a hobby has turned into a full time business, turning the endless search for things we love into things we can sell from our home and in our online store.

We source quality antique and vintage furniture from the 19th and 20th centuries and where necessary revive and restore pieces to bring them back to life and up-to-date.

In our workshop we undertake traditional French polishing and upholstery methods, as well as self taught painting techniques to re-finish pieces that require attention.

Most of our furniture is made of solid wood, usually oak, mahogany or pine, we appreciate quality and craftsmanship and prefer selling British made furniture whenever possible.

Selling pieces that are useful and practical in the modern home, storage is always a key theme, appreciating that people need attractive items that also provide functionality.

Our painted furniture is created using eco-friendly paints and waxes from Rustoleum, Farrow and Ball and The Little Greene Paint Company.

It has always been important to us to have a 'green' business, we love the concept of recycling old furniture instead of buying new.

Quality furniture is hard to find at a reasonable and affordable price and we feel that we provide both.  The things we sell don't belong in the mass produced age of flat pack furniture, but are tailored towards an individuality that will suit both modern and vintage homes alike.
