Circa 1860, wonderful mid Victorian military teak blanket box/trunk of generous proportions. The large rectangular top with its cast brass quarter brackets. In the centre there is an embedded brass plaque with canted corners and scribed on the sides. It has been engraved “A. Small, Dundee”. The top has a deep apron and is hinged. When the lid is open there are 3 large brass hinges to retain the lid and the original lock on the front. Inside there is an open space. At the sides there are 2 massive cast brass lifting handles, and brass strapping down the front and the back. This trunk is great size, good storage, would make a wonderful coffee table.
