T120 - Rare Jenny Lind Doll or Toy Trunk - SOLD 04/2024


Size: 12" x 7 1/2" tall x 7 1/4".

A nice Jenny Lind toy, sample, or doll trunk of the 1850's to 70's. These are very hard to find, especially so complete! It has the distinctive bread loaf shape which is part of the Jenny Lind style. This one has been carefully refinished and restored, keeping as many of the original features as possible. All of the small Jenny Lind style brass buttons or tacks and hardware are original. The hasp style lock is complete but without a key. The brass handles are original and unique to some miniature trunks!

There are small iron hinges which are the originals. It also has four small metal rollers on the bottom, not found on all doll trunks! The interior has been relined with fabric and also has the original wood tray with early style paper trim and lithographs. (See detailed pictures). Perfect for display with your fashion dolls or miniature trunk collection, as a special jewelry box, or as a great conversation display piece!

A true piece of American history related to Swedish singer Jenny Lind who toured the US from 1850 to 1852 with P.T. Barnum. These special little trunks were well made and used by children and ladies, but were not something everyone could afford. The trunk is all wood and the bottom is in very good condition. The overall condition is very good and the trunk displays very well. Please see all the pictures for the condition details. For many years I have specialized in the early American made trunks including the famous Jenny Lind style which originated in the United States. Each one of these miniature trunks that I've had were different in some small ways, but each has a lot of character and charm!
