Mid 1800s Hand Built Trunk Covered with Animal hide and hair, T1971.  This box was likely made by a home crafter or the local saddler.  Pine board construction with metal lid banding and animal hide covering.  It measures 28 inches by 17 inches and the top is 16″ off the floor, which is just right for a coffee table.  The animal hide may be horse hide or cow hide; the hair is short.  Note the wrinkles in the hide on the top, but we like the rustic appeal of this box.  T1971 is $250 flat, and 48-state USA shipping is included in the price.  Free shipping, right?  One more thing:  the box is lined with old newspaper pages, and there’s a date of August 2, 1844 on the front page of the New Hampshire Statesman.  Cool.
