17th Century Leather Bound Trunk,
Brass Studs, Crowns, Fleur de Lis
Probably French


17th Century Leather Bound Trunk, Brass Studs, Crowns, Fleur de Lis 
Probably French, entire view 1

This casket is mounted with a pair of cast brass crowns which center the wrought iron bail handle. Other
ornament includes oval brass bosses, and hand planished domed tacks. On the front are a pair of brass
fleur-de-lis centering the lock hasp and heart shape escutcheon. All sides are covered in leather; bottom
appears to be covered with ostrich hide affixed with 27 domed brass tacks [may be over original hide];
some of the smallest domed tacks are embossed on edges. The interior is marble papered. Leather hinge
runs the width of trunk; metallic bound wove thread tape binding prevents the lid from falling backward
which partially protected the integrity of hinge. About half of the leather hinge is split, other minor
imperfections are consistent with age and use. When we acquired the box, the lock escutcheon plate was
missing some nails. We have since added period nails. Displays well.
(Height: 5"; width: 10.75"; depth: 7")
