Circa 1920s, cabin trunk. With a flat top, reinforced brackets in metal which is riveted in all the corners on the top, bottom and sides. The front of the chest has the most elaborate locking devices with three pairs of clasps, a locking device and two further metal sections which is rather a lot for such a humble chest. The sides, walls and back are reinforced with wrap over metal, rivited with spacing rivets throughout. The underside has 4 small studs to raise it slightly off the ground. It retains its original metal and leather lifting handles and some labels from the original journeys. This would make a great coffee table.
