    Antique Steamer Trunk Flat-Top Wood & Leather with Iron Corners John Burum Rare

    23" x 40½" x 13"

    Burum trunks must be scarce, as a search for that label on various sites turns up nothing. Perhaps they were better known for their umbrellas.

    Exterior has worn canvas (still some original green paint) between leather straps (with black lines and brass nail heads) and wood slats that terminate in cast iron corner and edge protectors. Lined with fabric (gray and white print). Bottom is tin (black paint is scratched and worn). Stenciled on each end are the initials A.H.M. (clearer/less worn on the right-hand end).

    This would make a good coffee table.

    Missing the leather handles (replacements can be found) and the leather straps that would have encircled the trunk. The latch will be included, but it is in the locked position, and none of my antique keys fits the lock (someone in the distant past removed the latch, so reinstalling it will require three nails). Missing two hardware edge protectors along bottom front. Has typical wear in all the usual spots, and one corner is a little loose (you see it move when the lid is lifted). Also missing the tray that would have rested on the side supports. No bad odors.

    Weighs 34 pounds.
