Description

Barrel stave trunks were named due to their tops resembling the side of a barrel. They were popular for a number of years around the 1870s, as was the Western Squares paper covering. This particular trunk has some elegant hardwood staves with lots of little rosettes mounted on them. The latches are our absolute favorite with spread eagles on them. They are quite unique too with their swing type “triggers”. Quite a bit of the Western Squares paper is still intact. Inside the trunk lid is the original almost mint condition lithograph of what appears to be a redcoat soldier. Most of the other lining of the lid is in really good condition too. This is another example of what we sometimes find and don’t have the heart to alter. We have cleaned it up, sanitized it and made sure it’s safe and functional. If you are looking for a beginner’s candidate for restoration then this one is for you. Help us preserve history and we can help you save a lot of money. The trunk measures 29″ x 16″ x 20″ and weighs 40 lbs. We found it in Bath, ME on one of our autumn trunk-hunting excursions.

This item is from our As-Is Showroom but we have made sure it is safe, functional and sanitary. We give good savings on the items we offer “as-is” so our customers can not only save a lot of money but can take pride in restoring or preserving a piece of history themselves. We only charge what we need to stay in business, the item is saved for posterity, and you gain a nice conversation piece. You save some money, we save some work and we both save some history! These items are in our private collection but we’ve run out of space and realize we just can’t keep them all so you can win too.
