Large Antique Trunk with Sea Green Colouring
This vintage trunk is a very interesting, slightly peculiar piece with bags of character. The front and lid, which only opens just under half way across the trunks top, has at some point been painted in a sea green colouring. More aged and worn on the top than on the front where the colour is more pronounced, the paintwork has been distressed by wear, telling a story of time and use. The rest of the trunk has a more natural finish that celebrates the graceful aging of the antique teakwood that the trunk is made with. The piece also has its original metalwork for strength, hinges and handles on either edge. Inside, the trunk has a large internal storage space but also a small secret compartment with a sliding wooden lid for storing precious items. The trunk sits atop of four charming, hand carved wooden feet. A really interesting, functional piece, this trunk would work perfectly as an eye-catching storage solution in a bedroom, dining room, hallway or landing.
