1890s Oak Slat Excelsior-Style Trunk
Many trunk enthhusiasts consider this to be the top of the trunk pyramid - the Oak Slat Trunk. This is a nice example of the style. Measures 33 inches long, 21 inches wide, and it's 29 inches tall at the peak of the dome.
Nice brass lock works like new and comes with one working key. Sturdy lid stay inside to keep the lid up whilst you're poking around in there.
There's a small compartment in the lid for storing your gloves, spectacles, or bottle of 'tincture' which you'll surely need when the steamship starts rolling in these heavy seas.
Initials WEM on the end must stand for Wilbur Elijah Mortenson or maybe Wanda Elizabeth Macomber or it could be Wally Edward Mills -you get to choose.
(includes ground shipping to any location in the 48 contiguous United States - nothing else to pay)
