Here for sale is a fantastic antique metal travel trunk full of history with original hand painted gilt lettering to the top. The name on the top is indistinguishable other than the word "Bombay". The fabulous remains of old travel labels are for the White Star Cunard and P&O and others. This stunning case would originally have had leather straps, the remains of one can be seen on one side. It has a lovely mottled finish effect to the metal, perfect for storage and styling in the home. 


Lots of signs of its travels and adventures. The metal catches to the front don't close. 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.

Please look at photos closely as they form part of the item description.
