Description

Antique teak merchants trunk with iron straps and brass corners
This Antique teak trunk with iron straps and brass corners, would have been made for a wealthy merchant to transport his valuables along the trade routes in the East.
It would have been transported on wagons or by boat to the far flung trading outposts in the East.
These chests needed to be durable to face the rigors of the arduous journeys the merchant would have to take. Therefore strong iron straps, brass corners together with hasps were fitted to make them secure and fit for the job.
This example has iron carrying handles to each end, and 4 straps across the top, together with many other straps around the chests body.
The lid opens on lovely blacksmith made hinges, to reveal a large storage interior with a small lidded compartment for smaller valuable or personal items.
Imagine the stories and conversation this will make when admired by your family and friends.
