The soft blue paint is all original on this lovely dome top trunk from Sweden. The monogram of SMD and date of 1810 indicate it was likely a wedding present for a couple begining their life together. Notice the beautiful garland of white flowers and flourishes that encircle the monogram and the wrought iron straps and corners that have been painted a shade of red that is almost orange. The interior includes a small lidded area to the right that was used to store private articles so they would not get lost amidst the larger blankets or items stored in the chest. This trunk is part of our “un-restored” collection and is being sold in "as is, used" original condition; how we found it in Sweden. You are welcome to contact us directly if you would like to learn more about this or other items, we will be happy to assist you further.
