Now Sold Cabin Trunk

Cabin Trunk

More trunks and boxes, We have a few at present. But only one like this,an old cabin or steamer trunk from the 1920’s. This photo shows some water damage in the bottom left hand corner, it is more a water stain on the lining paper than damage to the trunk structure. Out side there are a couple of labels, one of which is from the Orient Line (1868 to 1960). Pretty similar to the trunk Groucho Marx sprang from in that scene in the steamship cabin. Was the film A Night at the Opera? And of course everyone knows that the Louis Vuitton version sells for 18,000 (Sterling!). So a bit of repapering and a brush of boot polish on the outside could be a prudent investment. In these uncertain financial times.
