T106 - Jenny Lind, Stagecoach Trunk, Ca. 1860 - SOLD 05/2022


Size: 24" Wide, 15 1/2" Tall, 16" front to back.

A medium sized Jenny Lind or Stagecoach trunk of the 1860's. Some also call these a Civil War period trunk and some of these were used by Civil War officers. They were first made by American trunk makers in the early 1850's based on historical documentation, This is in "as found" condition with the original tooled leather covering and would make a great restoration project, or could even be used as-is. This has the unique keyhole Jenny Lind shape which is very rounded and elegant. This one has four iron bands with the original large brass buttons and a fabulous original brass lock (no key). The interior of the trunk is covered in small print paper. The original lid compartment door is present but the lower tray is missing. There is one side handle remaining and original style handles are available. The trunk has extra brass buttons on the back and sides, which is very hard to find. The trunk even has smaller brass buttons holding the valance (dust band) around the lid. This was a high quality trunk for its' time. The iron hinges are in good condition. The trunk is structurally very sound, needing some minor repairs and would be a great trunk to refinish or restore. A true piece of American history related to the Swedish singer Jenny Lind. These were made during and after her extremely popular U.S. tour in 1850 to 1852. Many items were named after her in the following years and she remained very popular until her death. This beautiful trunk is well made and strong and the bottom is in excellent condition too. If you've looked for a nice Jenny Lind to restore you will see that this trunk has several nice features not found on cheaper models.
