Description
Antique Victorian trunk box travelling case etc made from camphorwood (a strongly scented timber which was traditionally used to deter moths) in the late 1800s probably. It has brass corner and edge brackets, and closing catches, as well as steel handles and replacement catches (still old ones though). Although the wood is quite thin, it is dovetailed properly at the corners. The front panel has a border painted with a wood effect; an original feature. Each side is made with just one piece of timber; usually a sign of early pieces, so this might in fact be mid 19th century.

declaration
Barnaby's of Battle has clarified that the Antique Camphorwood Travelling Trunk 19th Century (LA471550) is genuinely of the period declared with the date/period of manufacture being 1890s
condition
Condition is pretty good for the age: structurally sound; cosmetically quite scuffed and marked but pleasantly so; the original brass catches have the hinged part missing, hence the later replacements I imagine. The inside is quite clean and still has its camphorwood scent; not too strong though and it's a nice enough smell; a bit like incense or sandalwood I suppose.
