Circa 1870, large Victorian camphor wood and brass bound travelling trunk. The wrap around brass banding on the top is held in place by small copper pins and further brackets on top of this. The lid with 4 hinges and 4 straps beneath the lid to make it sturdy is held in place by a bracket. Inside there is uninterrupted space. At the sides there are 2 pairs of metal lifting handles and the banding continues around the sides and the base. The front has an unusual combination with 2 brass sections in the centre which are guides to ensure the lid closes correctly, and a brass clasp left and right. The clasp on the right is missing. In the centre there is the original spring loaded lock. (There has been a key cut for this). The colour is mellow and the condition is very good.
