Travel trunk from early twentieth century, 1910s
Delivering from: Sant'Arsenio , Italy
Travel trunk of the twentieth century.
Subject: Travel trunk
Period: around 1910
Style: treasure trunk
Aesthetically very pleasant wooden and iron chest. Made of poplar wood for the structure, covered in wrought iron and decorated on the entire visible surface. External reinforcements in hard wood, probably oak.
Designed for ship travel and extreme transport conditions, it is very solid and resistant. The aesthetic aspect is very accurate, with floral decorations painted on the sides and on the lid. It closes with two side hooks and a central key lock. Completely original in all its parts except for a side handle in leather replaced because it is missing and the key, also lost and replaced with a key from the same period and style of the trunk.
He presents on the lid the inscriptions of the owner and of the journey he made from the port of Salerno, to the port of Naples in southern Italy to the United States of America, probably New York.
The interior in poplar wood covered with decorated paper keeps this original coating in the lid, while in the bottom of the trunk it was largely missing and has been restored in wood and painted and protected.
as regards the restoration already partially described, an attempt was made to keep everything original and exclusively to protect it.
Completely restored and ready to use.
Length: 87 cm
