Original vintage storage Trunk
This is an old and original teak trunk with strapped brass edging. It has a simple brass catch which allows for a lock if needed. Inside this unusual trunk there are many compartments. On the left and right there is a door which opens to a small storage space, and on the right this includes a hidden area which reaches to the bottom of the trunk. Within the centre there are many more compartments, sat within a tray, which enables you to lift these out to get below to the main large storage area. All these doored compartemts have carvings on them which gives them a lovely decorative look. These trunks were originally used by a shopkepper as a kind of till system, to keep his coins in. This top section lifts off allowing for the more valuable notes to be kept safely. There is a stopper at the back to prob the lid open on to and a handle on each side too.
