T113 - Jenny Lind Red Leather Doll Trunk - SOLD 08/2021


Size: 12" x 7 1/2" tall x 8"

A miniature Jenny Lind toy / sample / doll trunk of the 1860's. These are extremely hard to find, especially so small and complete! It has an elegant curved shape which is not often found on these small trunks. This one has most of the original red leather covering, four paper bands with brass tacks and a fancy brass lock cover.. The lock keyhole cover is present but the inner lock piece is missing. The leather handles have been replaced as they would have been. There are small iron hinges which are the originals. The interior has the old paper lining, original wood tray, and the drop down compartment in the lid. (See detailed pictures). This style may have been made during the mid 1850's to 1860's. 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 the Civil War and Swedish singer Jenny Lind who toured the US from 1850 to 1852 with P.T. Barnum. These special little trunks were quite well made and used by children and ladies, but were not something everyone could afford. The trunk is all made of wood and the bottom is in excellent condition. The interior does have some missing spots of the lining and one outer side has the leather missing. The overall condition is good and the trunk displays very well. See 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.
