T101 - Barrel Top Toy Trunk 1890's


Size: 16" long x 11" tall x 10" deep.

A rare and beautiful barrel top toy or doll trunk of the 1890's. These are very hard to find with the ornate brass corner clamps! It's a little larger than most doll trunks and has a very impressive appearance. The leather handles have been replaced on the sides as well as the lid lifter. All of the metal work, wood slats, and hardware are original. There are two bands of metal across the trunk, a feature of the more expensive models. The old leather covering had to be removed and the wood body of the trunk was carefully refinished. This is a high-quality doll trunk as most were covered with paper or cardboard. The interior has been cleaned and relined with fabric, and there is an original small print of a woman and child in the lid. See details in the pictures provided. The lock and latch are present but the lock does not work and there is no key available. This style was made during the 1890's to very early 1900's. A page from an 1897 catalog showing similar toy trunks will also be provided! This is perfect for display with fashion dolls or a trunk collection; or to use as a special jewelry, glove, or document box! These special little trunks are quite well made and were used by children but were not something everyone could afford. The trunk is all made of wood and the bottom is in solid condition with the small metal wheels! The overall condition is great and the trunk displays very well.
