This particular item...
An original early 20th century metal trunk…
Dating back to the early 20th century, circa 1910, this is a rare and genuine trunk made by ‘Two Brothers’. Made with a crocodile effect surface and beautifully designed, this trunk could serve many purposes. Great storage, maybe a side table or even a coffee table for the centre of your living room
The trunk is made from metal, a hard wearing tin perhaps and hand painted in Black (probably not the original colour). It’s very heavy and strong and features a brass lock mechanism with the ‘Two Brothers’ makers mark. The two handles either side enable one to carry this easily and the cleanliness inside means one can comfortably store items without damage or odour
The detailing is just wonderful and it’s such an eye catching piece for any room in your home…
We are offering this piece in ‘as found’ condition, therefore there is some natural wear and tear. The trunk is structurally great and strong, although the top is slightly warped in areas. This doesn’t impact the overall look and feel. There is the odd surface scar or abrasion and a little paint chipping. Lastly, there is no original key, but the lock mechanism does simply push together. Please do study the photos to help with your analysis as it would be hard to highlight all imperfections…
Dimensions : Depth : 51.5cm, Width : 70.5cm, Height : 48cm
Condition : Structurally good, a little warped on the top, some surface marks and scratches, some paint chipping, no key present, not lockable
Postage : Heavy Item £25 or local collection from CB25 0AA
