This is a vintage Victorian era steamer trunk manufactured by the H. W. Rountree Brothers Trunk and Bag Company of Richmond Virginia. It measures 30” wide by 19” deep and 20” high, is solidly constructed with heavy duty hardware and is in very good condition. The interior is lined with a decorative floral design. The trunk includes a lift-out tray that is so uniquely designed that it was patented by the H. W. Rountree Company. This tray is constructed in two parts and the front section can be swung up, allowing access to items stored in the bottom section.
This is an amazing find for the collector and would be a unique piece in a décor highlighting antique furniture and travel. Stop in to The Closet and ask the store manager to see this piece of history.
