A stunning and original antique travel trunk. A great suitcase which would have been used on steamer ships and trains at the turn of the century. Made from Vellum calfskin and indicate its high quality. The word Vellum is derived from the Latin word 'Vitulinum' meaning "made from calf", leading to old french vélin, or "calfskin".  A wonderful example of a period trunk, perfect to add soul and character to any modern space.


Scuffs and wear to outer. No Key. Marks and staining to interior lining. Shows signs of wear and tear as it is old and has been used, but only adds to its character. Great decorative item which would look fantastic in any home or business interior.

We are a family company and love sourcing unusual pieces which bring a burst of individual style to the most modern of interiors, creating interiors with soul!


66 cm width, 40 cm depth, 18.5 cm height
