    I love this old box. It is a beautiful "Settler's Trunk" once used by a B. C. Stevens who must have been on his way to make a new life for himself in Canada. He travelled on the SS Dominion (Montreal). You can still see all of this painted (freehand) writing on all sides of the box. How it ended up in Warwickshire is anyone's guess.

     
    The trunk is painted black - it is pine (I'm 99% sure).
     
    It has real age and real character and is in overall very sound condition - there is a broken hinge however, which could easily be replaced.
     
    It measures 95 cm across, 42 cm high and 40 cm deep.
     
     
    I've done a bit of further research. The SS Dominion was built by Harland and Wolf in 1893 and was decommisioned in 1922. There are many Stevens on the passenger lists. She sailed from Liverpool to Quebec many times between 1893 and 1905. The Dominion Line became the White Star Line!
